Fresh produce, and preserved foods. The important scarecrow competition, won by 11 year old Holly.Beautiful sewing projects that made great use of the gorgeous fabrics you can find these days.What I look for every year - quilts.
And back to the animals. At least at the Westmoreland Fair, the fair would be incomplete without the work the kids do all year to get their animals ready for the ten days at the fair. Some do not leave all week, camping in the barn or trailers outside. Naturally there are parents involved, and many volunteers that keep the kids going and to the right places.
When you go to the fairs or know someone involved, thank them for their work and projects that make a fair so wonderful to visit. Without them - I can't imagine.
