Before we announce the winner to the Disney on Ice Contest, we have to let everyone know that this was a hard decision for the State Fair staffers to make! Thank you to everyone who posted a memory from Disney on Ice in the comments. It is a wonderful feeling to know that one of our events holds a place in so many people’s hearts and minds when they think of the Oklahoma State Fair.
That being said, the envelope please….
The winner is Danielle who had this memory:
I have to say the best part about Disney on Ice is when everything goes dark and all you hear is the excitement of the kids and all you see are the kids and there light up toys. There is no better feeling than the feeling of being home! Growing up my grand parents adopted my brother, sister, and I. I remember the first time that they took us to see Disney on Ice. I was thinking to myself there are so many people here and what is the big deal? But once the arena went dark and they started the show I was mesmerized! The smiles on the skater’s faces, the excitement surrounding us, and the smell of popcorn and ice was truly awesome. But now that I am a “grown up” I haven’t been to Disney on Ice in a very long time and I would love to go and have that comforting feeling that everything is how it should be. I now have a child of my own and this is his first year, I would love to be able to take him and start this tradition that my grandparents started with my siblings and me, with him!
Congratulations, Danielle! We will email you the award details shortly.
Thanks again to everyone who submitted a memory. We had a great time reading them all!
We will be holding more contests as the we get closer to the 2010 Oklahoma State Fair so check back often for updates.
