All Ready for Dakota County Fair 2009!

This afternoon I set up my booth at the Dakota County Fair, which will run tomorrow through Sunday, August 16th! This will be Paintertainment's 12th year at the fair. This is still the only fair that I do to date.

We recently traded in our Dodge Durango for a Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was a bit smaller. I wasn't sure everything would fit but I miraculously was able to cram everything into the car, even with a spot open for our carseat! I had to take photos to remember how to fit everything in when the fair is done!


It took about 50% longer to set up this year since we had our 19 month old son with us! But, all went well. Here is the booth all set up:


This year I have a new banner that runs the length of my booth...you're sure to spot me when walking by the building! I also have many new designs to choose from this year, and a new and improved photo board of past fairgoers and their paintings. Be sure to check it out if I took your photo last year...you may be on it!

If you'd like to find me this year, I'm in my usual spot, just inside the entrance of "building 22," also known as "Exhibit Hall South," down on the south end of the fair, just south of the red building. My mom will be painting most weekdays from 10-4, and I will be there from 4-10 every night, and from 10-10 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Click here for directions. One thing to note if you are coming down I-35 to the fair...you can't get off on 70 this year due to construction, so you'll want to take 185th street to county road 50, into Farmington. Hope to see you there!

This is an awesome post! It is always fun to get to peak inside what other face painters are brining with them. I feel so new to the festival painting arena. Thank you for sharing and I hope you will continue to blog in 2010! I know I'm subscribing right now!
