Knox County Fair with Hair Ball

We always go to Keith's hometown of Bloomfield for the Knox County Fair.  We arrive early afternoon and the kids get their ride wristbands immediately.  They ride the rides on the midway for the entire afternoon.
 This year their riding fun was cut short when it started to rain and rain and then rain some more.  The fairgrounds was just dumped on by rain.  I got stuck in the open class building for probably about 45 minutes to an hour.  Previously, I had been stuck in another building with Justin for about 30 minutes.
 After dumping over 2 inches of rain, the weather cleared off for awhile and the decision was made to move the concert for that evening inside the pavilion.  Therefore, the Hairball concert started two hours late because all of their equipment had to be taken down and put back up inside.
 The band did not disappoint the crowd.  Hairball played for 2 1/2 hours.  The concert was loud since it was inside, but the crowd that stayed for the concert was big.  These photos are pretty blurry, but we love this band!  Hairball is a tribute band to all the great "hair" bands of the 80's. 
Happy, the lead guitar player

David Lee Roth


Jon Bon Jovi
Tomorrow the kids and I head back to school.  I don't remember the last time that school has started this late for the kids at Norfolk Catholic, but I am so glad that we did this year.

Take care,


  1. Hairball! How great is that name?! I love it.

  2. That band scares me! ;) Kidding -- but not really! Maddy just started today - a whole week after LPS -- that made her happy! :)

  3. So sorry I missed that rainy but fun weekend! We better see where they are playing next since I missed out this time!
