Our County fair started today and will run through Sunday. It draws over a hundred thousand people from all over because of the entertainment. Tonight the Oak Ridge Boys are playing and as the week goes along Guess Who will be here....and other entertainers. I have always loved going through the buildings especially the craft/art building where many talented local artists display their prize winning creations. Do you have a county fair in your area and do you like attending it?

Hello jillhill. Wow, it sounds like you have quite a County Fair! We've lived in our current home for 5 years. And I've never been to the county fairs here. The last year or 2 my husband and I have talked about going, but just never gotten around to it. The heat here in the summer time is so oppressive that I can't imagine walking around at the Fair, even for an hour. However, I don't know how early in the morning it starts, which may offer an option for us. When we lived in IL, we did occasionally go to the County Fair. In fact, one year I entered my Cinnamon Swirl Loaf bread in the bread baking contest and won a blue ribbon! I was totally shocked. A neighbor had told me to enter it after I baked a loaf and sent it over to her house (my son was about 8 years old at the time and he took it to her). She kept bugging me to enter it, so I did. Anyhoo, this discussion makes me want to check out our County Fair this year, just to see what they have. I don't think they'll have any known musicians or anything like that, since the town is so small in FL. Hope you enjoy your County fair. Take care, jill.

The fair in my area starts July 30, 2008 and ends August 10, 2008. It only costs a $1.00 on the first day of the fair, so its a great day to save money. The days I would like to be there are August 1st, as the Doobie Brothers are performing and the other day is August 4th when The Beach Boys are performing again. My daughter isn't happy with any of the performers this year. he took one look at my choices and said they are old. I will be going, but will have to work out the details with my husband for which day. I'm sure it won't be Monday August 4th, as I work that day. I'm hoping for Friday.

I know some people that go to it everyday but I don't. Maybe one evening to eat all the goodies!
