It has diminished to a shade of its former self but there are still a few interesting things to see. Like this antique underwater bomb disposal suit:
And what's a visit to the fair without those fabulous mini-doughnuts?

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a geek; I like science fiction, fantasy and historical novels, so, when it came time for the annual fair, complete with Star Trek exhibit, it was a must-attend for me.
It was a no-photos allowed display - there were lots of costumes, models and props from the various Star Trek movies and series. The most interesting thing for me was the timeline; it placed each of the series and movies in chronological order (not in real time, but according to when it takes place in the story).
They did have some photo-opp sets which we took part in; here they are in all their geeky glory. This bridge is from the original series:
|Big J and I ... boldly going where no man has gone before|
|Make It So!|
There was a little gift shop at the exit; I succumbed and bought a few buttons with Star Trek quotes. I was actually looking for Bajoran earrings in the shop or maybe a uniform top, but they didn't have any.
We also bought some tickets for the Prize Home. It wasn't as nice as previous prize homes; it was more a vacation style 2nd home than a regular home. You can go on a virtual tour or check out the photos. (link will probably die in a few months time, so check it out now).
