Utah State Fair

Instead of Rodgers and Hammerstein it’s Carrington Court AL Presents the State Fair! On September 8th we were able to visit the Utah State Fair with our assisted living crew. We saw all sorts of animals, gigantic veggies and fruits, a Guinness Book of World Records clown and daredevil, and generally just had a great time.
