My Absolute Favorite’s at the Rocky Mountain Association of Fairs.

Some may know some may not. I work at a Fairgrounds (hence my blog name) and a couple times a year we have the chance to go to conventions and take classes to further our education in the industry, network with other fairs, make new friends and watch the best entertainment around. When we go to these conventions our fair board books the entertainment and acts for our fair. The fair at our Fairgrounds is a small county fair…but with huge amounts of entertainment and fun! The dates for our fair this year are July 19th – July 26th. I am going to give you all a highlight of the entertainment that we were able to see along with some of my absolute favorites.

A couple times a day we get to watch the showcasing either on the stage or strolling. These are entertainers that have been chosen by a committee to perform in front of everyone. This act I am about to introduce you to are two of the best people I have ever met in my life they are kind, generous and so fun to watch and be around. Mango and DangoSAMSUNG

These two perform a stage show and do stroll through the crowd too. The kids are in awe of their wacky hair and makeup and think their flying umbrella ship is something straight out of a story. As you can see in the picture my daughter adored them. Find more info about Mango and Dango on their facebook page and Website.

One performance that really stood out was a guy named Jason D. Williams. He reminds you of Jerry Lee Lewis. If you have ever heard the name Jerry Lee Lewis than you know that you are in for a treat if you haven’t than check them both out 🙂 Jason can Boogie with the best of them and likes to let lose and party on stage. He is fun and can keep and get a crowd going. Here is a sample on youtube. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnGmXa9oOuU he is also on facebook. https://www.facebook.com/rockinjasondwilliams

Next up is Willy and Lloyd. I have always heard of Washboard Willy but I have never had the chance to see him. I can say I was truly missing out all of these years. Willy is so Awesome with his washboard instrument I don’t think anyone that hasn’t seen it could even imagine how Awesome it is. I haven’t seen Lloyd Mabrey either and again missing out…he is funny! the two of them teaming up is a duo unlike any other, music and comedy for the whole family.

Debating…

I am debating if I want to do two separate blogs. One for my fitness and one for my family. Keep Brower Family Fair for my family and fair blog and I have another name for my other but I don’t want to say it just yet 🙂 It is just a thought. I know I am not a great blog writer. I would love to be and learn everything about it but not sure if it’s my time to do that yet. It is funny how we all have these great ideas or things we want to do/accomplish but yet when is the right time? Do you just jump in and do it? Do you start little by little or wait until you can get things what you feel are just right?

My training is still going good. I am more motivated now ( I will probably give my reasoning for that in another post). I have started adding in GVT (German Volume Training) into my exercises I can see it is helping build my muscle better than anything else I have done. It is tough. An example of GVT would be doing 10 barbell squats 10 times. I found this article that describes it nicely from Simplyshredded.com http://www.simplyshredded.com/german-volume-training-a-new-look-at-an-old-way-to-build-mass-strength.html
