First, an historical note. "Yavapai" is a Native American word, pronounced YAV-uh-pie. It was the name of a tribe of Yavapai Apaches who lived in this area long before the white man came.
But on to the fair. I always love the garish colors.
This vendor, "Sassy Lil Thangs", is a prime example. I didn't even look at her various tsochkes but the colors certainly do get one's attention.
When I go to the fair with SWMBO, I have no doubt what she wants to see.
Just like Hugh Hefner. BUNNIES!
There are other critters present.
Geese and ducks.
Incidentally, the critters were caged inside a huge tent covering that had a lot of red in it. Hence the tint.
There was a turkey or two.
There were goats.
There was even a tiny (and very pregnant) dwarf goat.
And lots and lots of sheep. (Sorry Dr. M, I neglected to photograph them.)
But rabbits is what SWMBO wanted and rabbits is what she got. Lots and lots of rabbits.
Maybe I should have said lops and lops of rabbits. There were many of this variety, called lop-eared or just lops because of the way their ears hang down. The ears on the front bunny can't seem to decide which way they want to go.
This is a prime example of a lop. Note the ears.
I liked this little mostly-white bunny with the very black ears.
So ends our trip to the fair. Oh, we did go inside Tim's Toyota Center and looked at a quite large photography exhibit and many examples of student art. And, though I was drawn, SWMBO doesn't care for the carnival and midway so we left and went instead to a local Mexican restaurant for beers and nachos.
