The Western Navajo Nation Fair

What do people do at the Western Navajo Nation Fair? Ride the rides and eat fried food — just like at home!

The food is a little different. Instead of funnel cakes, cotton candy, and barbecue, they have fry bread, curly fries (spiral-cut potatoes), and other traditional foods.

At night, they have traditional dancing and "singing" (with drums) in the big tent.

Look at that rain coming in.

I enjoyed the festive atmosphere and elaborate costumes (my pictures are pretty blurry in the dark arena). But it was a chilly, muddy walk back to the camper at night.
