Lexington Lions Club Bluegrass Fair: Masterson Station Park, Leestown Rd. Lexington KY

Nothing says it's summer till you've been spun around a few times while eating cotton candy or a corn dog till you beg to stop! Yes! It's time to go to the fair! 

My older brother and I used to pester Mom and Dad for days about going to the Lexington Lions Club Bluegrass Fair.  It seemed magical and I just couldn't get enough of it. Back then it was held at The Red Mile Kentucky Harness Racing Track.

Many times I came home completely happy with a sticky face and half sick from all the wonderful combinations of cotton candy, corn dogs, candy apples, elephant ears and Coca-Cola!

I loved the amusement  rides, which were pretty tame back then. The Farris Wheel, Tilt-A -Whirl, The Crazy Mouse, Teacups, Merry Go Round, Himalaya, Scrambler and the Fun House were favorites.

Last but not least were the Bumper Cars where we could actually try to kill each other while our parents watched unaware. This year there will be over 100 rides, games and  attractions.

You haven't bet on anything till you have bet on the pig races. These cute little piglets shoot out of the gate and race to the finish to get their reward. An Oreo cookie! They run fast as greased lightning to get to the finish. I always win money on this...Not!

The Lexington Lions Club Bluegrass Fair will be on July 10 - 20 over at Masterson Station Park off Leestown Rd in Lexington KY.

It will be open 5PM weekdays and Open 3PM Saturday and Sunday.

You will be able to save up to $8.00 if you buy advance tickets at Kroger or National City Bank locations.

Hey, this could be gas money!  

For $12 you will receive admission and unlimited rides.

Lizette, I miss rides--honestly!   I used to go on them all the time.  I've never seen a pig race, that must be cute.

Lizette,

As I grew older the rides provided less of a thrill. I remember the octopus and the ferris wheel thingee that spun you upside down. Somewhere along the line instead of thrilling me they made me sick.

Carole - I like to see them for photo ops but I don't care to ride them now. I'm like Steven below. I get a bit sick on them!

Steven- Sounds like my idea of the rides now. They aren't as much fun. I guess that goes hand n hand with being lactose intolerant as we get older. LOL

Hey Lizette, I was a bumper car sweetie as a kid and couldn't get enough of driving those things around. Boy, did your post bring back a lot of fond memories. Thank you for sharing this information and enjoy your evening. C.
