I attended the Portland Rose Fair this weekend. It was a colorful and fun festival full of music, fragrant roses, and aromatic delicacies. Apart from the usual elephant ears, churros and such, there were some old fashioned swirl cakes, fried apple pies with cream and deep fried crunchy rose petals with salted caramel syrup. I and my husband were initially a bit hesitant to try the last one but it turned out to be really delicious!
There were a lot of thrill rides, some of which were unimaginably dizzying to even look at! I played a few hands at some silly yet fun games and managed to gather a few teeny-tiny prizes.
It was a somewhat hot afternoon and we had to spend quite a few hours walking in the sun. So I chose to wear a really loose fit, cotton baggy dress with a pair of strappy flat sandals. I also threw on a long, wide red scarf to add some color and for some light insulation in case the weather got chilly around evening. Posting some pictures below.
(I also had on, a pair of dangling pearl earrings which aren't visible, so, will post pictures with them some other time. )
