County and state fairs are an American tradition and a great way to have fun.
I cannot find out exactly how many county and state fairs there are in the United States, but it’s obviously hundreds. Click here to see a pretty good list of fairs, divided by state.
Even if I’m right that there are hundreds, and although I’ve only been to a few of them, I’ll bet I can do a pretty good job of describing your closest fair.
Let’s see . . . carnival rides . . . carnival games . . . crafts . . . livestock . . . mucho food . . . demolition derby or tractor pull . . . perhaps a country music concert.
How’d I do?
We just made our annual visit to our local county fair and I thought you might enjoy a few photos. Do they look familiar?
