Opening night at the Greater Baton Rouge State Fair was Thursday, October 25, 2012. I went to the fair pretty regularly as a kid, but probably have not been in over 20 years. Thursday's weather was nice, there were lots of clouds in the sky, and it looked like it was going to be a nice sunset. I wanted to take some long exposure shots of the rides just as it was starting to get dark so decided to take advantage of the weather. Turnout was pretty good for a Thursday night.
