I worked with a guy who said he loved grilling out — another co-worker quipped, which part do you like best: the gnats or the smoke? In some ways the same line of logic applies to a fair. You have the aroma of livestock barns melded with the smell of deep-fried food.
But somehow — just like grilling — it works.
