Gwaltney Backyard Fair

Gwaltney

We see contests posted everywhere on social media these days. Do you ever wonder if they are legit ? Do you ever wonder if there really is a winner?? Over the summer Gwaltney ran their “Win a Fair in your backyard” promotion, and guess what…a real live person won and her name is Jenny Dixon. She’s adorable! Gwaltney

Jenny had no hopes of winning, she thought she would just win some hotdogs, but nope, she won a super fun day with her friends and family.

The fair was held at the beautiful Horan park in St.Pete Florida. It was literally monsoon-ing all morning and then cleared up to be a wonderful day..a little warm, but still beautiful!

All the kids( and adults too) loved the petting zoo. There was adorable mini ponies, donkeys, ducks, rabbits, and funny little goats.

Ummmm, did you know that cotton candy melts in the heat?? Yep, melts. So I suggest eating it fast, which does not seem to be a problem for most.
This man was the cutest, I’m not sure of his age, but he was a young whipper snapper.

. No fair is complete without some games. Thankfully there was not the quintessential heckler trying to get people to play the games. Gwaltney

. Have you been to a fair without a Fun Slide? Chances are, no. So why would a private backyard fair be without one?? Fun slide…….CHECK! . Gwaltney

I did not attempt the rock wall, but the kids rocked it! Gwaltney Everyone had a great time. What is better than spending a Sunday afternoon with your closest friends and family? Not much. Family and friends is where its at!

    I have never won anything. this looks like a fun time. I never knew cotton candy melted, but I do live in Minnesota, so maybe I have never had it in the heat.
