Moose on the Loose: SagaMoose at the Great New York State Fair

For the second year in a row, SagaMoose was able to get out of camp for a night to enjoy the Great New York State Fair with SagaStaff friends! It’s a trip he’s been looking forward to all summer and it definitely lived up to expectations.

He made stops at many fair classics, including the butter sculpture.

SagaMoose, now an experienced fair-goer, headed straight for some of the classics of the State Fair, including the butter sculpture.

He very much enjoyed visiting the Iroquois Village during a dance performance.

He enjoyed a stroll through the various animal barns, and appreciated the opportunity to hang out with some fellow ungulates.

SagaMoose also enjoyed some quieter moments at the Christmas Tree Framers' Association collection of lovely little pines.

In all the hustle and bustle of the fair, it was nice to take advantage of some quieter moments at the Christmas Tree Framers’ Association collection of lovely little pines.

Of the many State Fair must-sees, the Dr. Suess sand sculpture was a personal favorite.

Our tuckered out moose found a nice place to rest at the end of the day before heading home with SagaStaff.

SagaMoose enjoyed getting to spend time with SagaStaff outside of camp and to see the great things other regions of New York have to offer. Do you have any end of summer trips you’d like to have SagaMoose join you for? Are you interested in hosting our moose at your house for a couple days? He loves to travel – just let us know in the comments or by emailing sagamorebook@gmail.com and we can get him on his way!

    If I had known you guys were going to visit the NYSF, I’d have told you to check out the prze-winning quilts in the Art & Home Center. My king-size “Sagamore Log Cabin” won 2nd prize and will be donated to Sagamore for their 2015 benefit auction.
