It’s time for the State Fair here in Wisconsin. I love movies that feature scenes of a County or State Fair. (Like Rodgers & Hammersteins State Fair… love it!)
So Dear to My Heart is an utterly charming movie that came out of Walt Disney Studios in the 1940’s, when you could still make a mainstream movie with family values that acknowledged God as our Creator. It’s a special movie that I’ve shared with my children since they were infants. It’s simply the best.
Enjoy this clip about the County Fair. In the movie a young boy raises a black sheep and takes him to the County Fair to try to win a blue ribbon.
Edited to add: I should mention that this is a live-action film, but the scene I’ve selected is one of several animated scrapbook musical montages throughout the movie which feature a wise old owl who shares many nuggets of wisdom. So sweet!
