Get Physical: Wander Around a Street Fair

I love a good street fair. They are a great opportunity for me and my husband (and the kids) to get out of the house, walk around, and pick up a few goodies. As the gift giving season comes upon us, I love going to festivals and fairs to find unique gifts for my family and friends. Besides the fun factor of finding random treasures for yourself and others, you can burn upwards of 380* calories from walking around a street fair for about two hours. It's not a ton, but it's better than sitting on the couch, and you'll also be logging in steps so that you can reach your goal of 10,000 steps per day.

Street fairs are happening all of the time, and holiday themed ones are on the horizon, so be sure to check your local listings for festivals and fairs near you.

Fit's Tip: Be sure to watch any foods you eat while wandering a street fair, since one deep fried Twinkie will leave you in a surplus of calories, despite all the walking you've done.

I just went to one yesterday! You don't even realized how long you've been walking around. The foods are tempting though (I had a chicken satay).

Been to about 5 street fairs here in the Bay Area. I steer clear of the fried foods but somehow and steered into the beer line. -shrug- Can't help it for oktoberfest.

Ew, a DEEP FRIED TWINKIE?? That just sounds wrong. I don't think we have any street fairs around us, but I do go to the farmer's market in the summer to walk around and look at all the cool stuff for sale.

I love street fairs too! I'm terrified of fried twinkies, but um, fried ice cream is pretty good. :X

i once went with my bro downtown to buy some beeswax. We ended up being lost for like 2 hours so we walked for two hot hours..only to find out that the store was so near from where we parked at we just passed by it a gazillion times without really knowing.
