Time for the County Fair

It's time, once again, for the Great Geauga County Fair! Yes, it's called the "Great Geauga County Fair" and it's held every year on Labor Day weekend. Now in it's 186th year, it is Ohio's "Oldest Continuous County Fair" as well as one of the oldest existing agricultural fairs in the nation.
It is huge and will be a lot of walking around. In fact, another of their slogans is "You can't see it all in one day!" Well, we always try. There will be great food, greasy fair food, candy apples, corn dogs, and more food! One time we were there at the right time to see the Dock Dog Jumping Contest. That was so fun to see all the dogs jumping off the dock into the lake.
I'm not sure what we'll see this year. There's something different each day. I always stop by the "Domestic Arts" barn and eye-up the knit and crocheted entries. One of these days I would like to enter. I'll have to try to get an application next year.
There's something fun for everyone at the Great Geauga County Fair!
Maybe I should have entered the Apple Pie contest? Maybe next year!

Maybe, maybe?

Sounds like one of those old fashioned things that we would just love to go to, and look forward to it. We don't have anything like that in this area.

That is a lot of years! WOW! You should definately enter one of your bags - you don't realize how pretty and unique they are! And it would be great marketing. But would you have to stick around a table all day, and not be able to see the fair?

The highlight of any fair for me is the Domestic Arts building. I always leave thinking next year something of mine will be there and never get it done.
