    As a suburban kid we went to the Allegheny County fair in the Pittsburgh area for the entertainment ( Bobby Rydell was one I reacall), the sewing building and the flowers. When I moved to Frederick, MD in 1971 I was given tickets to the Great Frederick Fair...I was sorely disappointed at the lack of flowers. Since then I have become a huge fan of the fair. I love the animals and the large farm equipment that they let the kids climb all over, the canning and sewing displays, the 4H projects. The food- country ham sandwiches, ice cream. Horse racing. Jousting.

    Today is the last day of our county fair. It seems to be shrinking, but every year I hope for the next year to be bigger. It is nice and crowded, but there seems to be a decrease in "participation" as far as events and submissions, etc.

    When we first moved to this area several decades ago, I used to participate every year - mainly entering crochet items and volunteering. Then life changed and participation dropped. Last year both my dd and I entered some items and it was very fun! This year we didn't make the deadline. Now I'm thinking... NEXT year! lol.

    We go to the fair tomorrow. Dog agility and obedience, draft horse day, and horse pull in the grandstand. Yay!
