Weekend Challenge: Festivals & Fairs

Happy weekend, all!

bizarra and I are in the midst of making travel plans for Memorial Day weekend - we're going to a statue unveiling and having a bit of a fandom get-together - so I decided to hunt down a list of interesting event destinations in the US.

There are 50 fairs and festivals to choose from (one for each state). Hopefully, the event, the location, or some other part of it will inspire you, this weekend!

You can request a specific state ; a number (or more) from 1-50 ; or I can hit the randomizer.
