On the way to the Masterton Airshow we stopped at the Gladstone School fair. This school in a small country settlement was founded in 1876. It was times with a local scarecrow competition, and judging by the amount of cars in the parking area very well attended.
I just love taking shots of people enjoying themselves. While it would be a temptation to use a longer lens all of these images are shot on 24-70mm.

The school pool was used for a lucky duck
Face painting was another crowd favorite.
A collection of scarecrows adorn the school fence
The kids really love it even if the ferris wheel is tiny
Hot dogs on a stick with tomato sauce. You can’t something that yells fair more
She happily posed for me
A lot of fun can be had with car inner tubes
How the juggling is supposed to be done
Parent helpers get into costume
Kids try their hand at juggling
