The Human Volcano


I really wasn't expecting much in the way of feature photos today at the State Fair of Louisiana since I had to go out in the middle of the day because of the High School football tonight. It was not a big surprise to find a sparse midway when I arrived. I made a the trip down and back between the rides and didn't find much in the way of photos. I decided to head up to the zoo. The zoo had plenty of animals and several empty stages but still I had not found much in the way of photo opportunities. The goats were sleeping and the alligator was hiding so I hung with the giraffe for a few minutes.

Finally I heard a crowd of people laughing several hundred yards down the street. I found they were enjoying the performance of Dallas The Fire Guy, a juggler who was entertaining the crowd. He kept saying everyone needed to stay around for his big finale so I waited along with the others watching his entertaining show. Indeed it was worth the wait when he did his " Human Volcano" and blew fire to end his show.

It just proves that you never know what you will find at the State Fair of Louisiana.

Those giraffes look sad. It's a shame that the fair brings exotic animals in like that.
