Area County Fairs are in full swing!!!  What's not to like about a County Fair.  There are so many things to see, do and taste for everyone.  There is an array of livestock and fresh produce on display from all the local farmers!  There is plenty of entertainment throughout the grounds and the "Big" stage.  Music can range from country to pop to christian.  The various clubs (4-H and FFA) will be displaying their award winning crafts, produce, photos and bake goods.  You can't forget about all the carnival rides for the young and the young at heart.  One of the best parts of a county fair is the food!!! Cotton Candy, Funnel Cake, BBQ, Lemonade, Fried Food on a Stick and much much more.  This post is making me hungry!!!
