The Huron County Fair kicks off on Monday. At four score and six, the local fair is not the oldest in Ohio, but the local organizers and patrons do it up as well as anyone.
The fair has something for everyone top-notch country music acts, cheerleading competition, truck and tractor pulls, ATV races and more. It all winds up on Saturday, Aug. 18, with the exciting demolition derby action.
While the aforementioned events draw a lot of attention, at its core, the Huron County Fair is about the area youngsters who have worked hard for many months to prepare their projects for the fair. Their exhibits will be on display in many barns and buildings, so be sure to stop by and check out their work and give them the encouragement they need and deserve.
Among the other fair highlights you'll see next week:
Huron County Commissioners will hold their meeting at the fairgrounds on Wednesday see your local government in action;
Fair food while culinary purists may scoff at the high calorie, high sodium, high fat goodies that are available to fairgoers, a little indulgence never hurt anyone particularly once a year. Try the newest deep fried delicacy; head to the Huron County Cattleman's, Bellevue FFA or Grange food stands, and don't forget to top it off with some ice cream by the dairy barns. You can walk it off later.
Your hometown paper will, of course, have a presence again at the fair. Circulation Manager Carol McLaughlin has been working hard on our display. Be sure to take an opportunity to drop by and get your personal tutorial of our Web site (www.norwalkreflector.com), chat with our staff about our coverage or even renew your subscription.
Whatever your interest, the Huron County Fair will have something for you. While it's been a welcome change of pace, let's just hope Mother Nature gets all the rain out of her system this week.
