Tonight is the first night for Poor Jack Amusements, the petting zoo is up and running with pony rides, Wednesday night is the next round of Wayne County Idol, and all kinds of fun events are happening at the track!

4H fair pic 2 boy and goatElephant ears, funnel cakes, walking tacos…..okay that’s what I think of first when I think of the Fair.  Next, I picture the 4H kids working hard on their projects or with their animals.  And then I think of the sounds…live music, laughter, animal noises, the sizzling of hot sausage on the grill… and I’m back to the food again.  <sigh>
