As someone who's still very much on the sharp edge of the learning curve when it comes to video, here's a little bit of what I saw. And heard.
DC State Fair 2012 from Kate Ryan Reports on Vimeo.
And here are some stills from that video. With a bit of background.
Hope you like them.
Is it me, or is this guy giving us a little bit of an eye-roll? Still, he was very sweet to the kids. He seemed to like their attention. The dogs that people brought to the fair? Not so much.
This stilt walker took time to engage everyone who walked by. And made plenty of parents happy when she told kids "How did I get this tall? I ate alllll my broccoli."
...and here's our bikey reference (aside from the contest I missed). Yvonne Vanderhoof was walking her pretty burgundy bike along, and looked the picture of stylish and casual. We chatted a bit. Her son goes to a school where they encourage the kids to ride their bikes to and from school. Future bike commuters of America.
