This summer, the county fair is the place to be! There are many activities, games, food and fun. Don’t forget to visit all the animals, especially the dairy cows and calves.

A whole week spent at the local fair, seeing friends, exhibiting the projects that we worked so hard on and even enjoying some tasty fair food!
