The sound of roaring race car engines woke us up the first morning of the new year. No, we had not mistakenly set up camp in the infield of a NASCAR track; there is a race track next to the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park and apparently they were doing time trials for most of the morning. And this weekend they are having a gun show, too!
Many RVers never think of fairgrounds as a camping opportunity, but we have stayed at many of them across the country over the years we’ve been on the road as fulltime RVers. We have always enjoyed not only the discounted camping, but often having a front row seat to all kinds of fun things we didn’t expect.
You just never know what kind of activities may be going on at a fairgrounds when you camp there overnight. Once we were at the fairgrounds in Torrington, Wyoming when a small circus was staying there between shows. I went over and talked to some of the folks who worked for the circus, and was given an interesting behind the scenes look at how they operated and how the performers, support people, and animals lived when the crowds left the big top and the face paint came off. On another visit to the same fairgrounds, we were there over the Fourth of July and had a front row seat for one of the best small town fireworks show we’ve ever seen.
