The Maui County Fair has a lot to offer, even though the fair is small, it is larger than our county fair back home in the Midwest, at least where I live. We went to the fair and spent some time looking around at the various booths and entertainment. I found the display of orchids by the Maui Orchid Society. Wow! I was in orchid heaven! I gazed at various types of orchids I never knew existed. Wonderful!
The Bonsai trees displayed by the Valley Isle Bonsai Club was interesting as well. Then there were the typical exhibits of local talent in the adult open class division, along with art exhibits from local students.
However, the display of fruits and vegetables was anything but typical, at least in my little corner of the world. There were exhibits of papayas, mangos, bananas, star fruit, dragon fruit, avocado, lemons, limes, squash, melons, macadamia nuts, sugar cane, coffee beans, even taro and tapioca.
There were close to 50 food booths to choose from as well; everything from American to Korean, Chinese, Hawaiian, you name it. There was an excellent selection of rides for kids and adults alike. And don’t forget the livestock and the industrial tents!
I will also include a few of the winners of the flower division. Gorgeous:
