The County Fair
County Fair time across the country is upon us! Last week when I visited home was our fair, Allegany County. While it is a small Maryland fair, I thoroughly enjoy it and this year there was a display about the history of our fair and fairgrounds which I found to be very interesting.
While it is undeniable the numbers of farmers and ranchers across the country are declining and the rural lifestyle is becoming a thing of the past, take some time today to think about your favorite memories of past fairs, livestock shows, and festivals. These are one of the greatest American traditions - let's not let it die.
