It is one of my favorite times of the year. Just like visiting an old friend. The exhibits, animals, events, smells, and the food. Each fair unique to their own community. This week started the kick off of fair time. Nothing can get more American than this. A time of year to celebrate our roots and heritage. Each year I have grand plans of entering one of the exhibits. I guess I still have time since there are many more to come. If you have never been to one, please take time to do so. It really is a one of a kind experience. As we were leaving, a couple stopped me in the parking lot and asked me what kind of fair this was. I explained and encouraged them to check it out. They clearly were not locals. In fact they were all the way from South Africa. I hope they enjoyed their time and learned a little about Pennsylvania farm life.
