State fair

Here in Spoonflower's home town, the State Fair is by far one of our most beloved fall traditions. Local farmers show off their biggest, best crops and livestock, we ride colorfully-lit ferris wheels, and indulge in probably more fried delicacies on a stick than we should. We want to know what your version of the State Fair looks like where you live! Let us see your best State Fair designs in this week's design contest. Deadline for entry is Tuesday, September 15th, 2015. Voting will open Thursday, September 17th, 2015.
