I’ve always been a big fan of the Wayne County Fair here in the great state of Ohio.
I remember going every year on fair day (we got a free ticket and a day off school). The fair started this past Saturday. We couldn’t make it to opening day, but we were able to go yesterday (and it was the perfect day – high of 72, partly sunny). So Mr Chiots and I and my mom all headed down to Wooster, Ohio to the Wayne County Fair.
We paid $3 for parking at the special “Boy Scout” area (really we just wanted to support them you can park for free in the field). It’s only $2 to get in to the fair, can you believe that? Nothing costs $2 nowadays. I think the sign must have been painted long ago and they just don’t want to change it.
The fair is full of fun and exciting sights, sounds and smells. We spent the afternoon walking through all the animal and agricultural barns and through all the vendors and the school craft barn (which I always had a few paintings in as a child).
Wayne County is a very agricultural county, it’s full of dairy farms and corn fields (if you notice on this sign Wayne County has been the #1 milk producing county in Ohio for a long time)
It was a great day. You just can’t beat the sights, sounds & smells of the county fair!
Every day this week I’ll be posting a few photos of the fair, so come on back and experience the Wayne County Fair.
