Bloomsburg Fair In The 80's



Bloomsburg Fair (1980s)
This aerial shot of the Bloomsburg Fair was taken by Ralph E. Menne in the 80's.  Since that time, the fairgrounds have expanded well into the parking lot.  I'm pretty sure that the entrance to the Fair today is where the bus parking ends in this photo.

Unfortunately, due to flooding from Tropical Storm Lee, photos like these are the only way to experience the Bloomsburg Fair this year.  It's only the sixth time since 1854 that the Fair has been cancelled.  The previous cancellations were due to World War I (1917-1918) and World War II (1942-1944).

Last month, Playboy.com shared a photo of model Jo Garcia posing with a massive collection of vintage video games, and a photo shoot where she wore cutoff t-shirts of video game shirts.  She has followed these up in September with three wallpapers that reflect her love of vintage video games - specifically Space Invaders, Duck Hunt and Mario Kart 64.
