Erie County Fair - DAY 1

Today was the Preview Night @ the Erie County Fair ~ America's Fair

Today was a long day! Starting out at DeLacy Ford on a LIVE Radio Remote with John LaMond of 106.5, WYRK. I always have a great time with him, he is one of WNY's best DJ's.

I stopped for a double espresso and made my way to the fairgrounds.

When I arrived I had a State Police escort into the facilities and VIP Parking.

The picture above is with a few girls who had stopped by for an autograph. As you will see behind us, the wall is covered in photos of appearances from throughout the year. It was an overwhelming feeling to arrive and see people viewing a wall of my accomplishments. Within the first few minutes of arriving, I had a family that actually came back asking for an autograph. They had said they were in earlier, heard my story, viewed my photos and waited for my arrival. That was definitely a heart warming moment!

It was a great experience to meet so many wonderful individuals from within our region, talk to so many children about seat belt safety and share my personal story with each passer by.

The next 11 days are going to be long BUT prove productive as I know many lives will be touched by this story in a positive way.

I will definitely keep my blog posted as the fair really gets going. Today was only the preview day.
Hope to see you there!
