The Scent of Kansas - Inspiration

Pin It
Where did I get the inspiration for the scent I created, COUNTY FAIR, for the Better Homes and Gardens® State Fragrance Contest? The local Harvey County Fair! No... they didn't name the fair after us... LOL. We happen to live in Harvey County Kansas. ;)

 The fair is in town this week and we couldn't WAIT to go see the sights! Last night was perfect for it too! The weather FINALLY took a break from it's 100+ temps and gave us an overcast evening and a cool breeze (followed by much needed rain!). This was my son's first outing to our local fair and I wanted to make sure it was a wonderful experience. We did it all, the fresh lime aid, cotton candy, and tickets to ride ALL the rides! Only... he wasn't quite ready to do that yet. But we still enjoyed watching the colorful horses and cars go "round and round" with all the blinking lights.  We had a wonderful time and look forward to the many fairs to come. Our next stop, the Kansas State Fair in September!  Check out their video!

Maybe then he'll be ready to hand his ticket over for a fun ride! We'll see. :)
