Even though we live in a very urban county, it still conducts a County Fair every August.
Children and adults can be transported back to a different way of life, seeing 4-H animals — cows, goats, horses, pigs, sheep, prize fruit, flowers, and vegetables, home-made food from these garden and farm treasures (cheese, pies), a fairway with games and sounds and carousels and other rides and, well, wholesome stuff to while away a day or afternoon….
It took us back to the last century in flavor (griddle cakes) and smells (tractor pulls) and giggles (slipping in the, uh, muck).
They even chose a fair queen and her court.
Do you have local fairs still in your neighborhood? Have you visited one this year?
