Always the signal that summer is coming to an end, the Allentown Fair is one of my favorite events of the year. From the creepy sideshows to the myriad of farm animals and homegrown veggies on display, the fair has something for everyone. Below are a few photos of one perfect evening spent wandering the midway.

And of course, my favorite part of the fair: Robinson’s Paddling Pigs.
The little hammies frantically vie for first place and a delicious Oreo cookie.
