The county fair is a beloved annual tradition, bringing together neighbors and visitors for a week of fun, food, and festivities. While the rides, games, and deep-fried delights are the main attractions, there are simple, everyday things fairgoers can do to enhance the experience for everyone.

  • First, share a smile and a friendly "hello" with fellow fairgoers. A positive attitude is contagious and can set the tone for a delightful day. Remember, you’re among friends and neighbors, and a little kindness goes a long way.
  • Keep the fairgrounds clean by disposing of trash properly. Litter-free paths not only look better but also keep everyone safe and happy. If you see a piece of trash on the ground, pick it up! It’s a small gesture that makes a big difference.
  • Support local vendors by trying out their homemade goods, crafts, and food. A visit to a local stand could make a vendor’s day and enrich your fair experience with unique, locally-made products.
  • Be patient and courteous in your lines. Whether you’re waiting for a ride, a game, or a funnel cake, a little patience can turn a long wait into an opportunity to chat with fellow fairgoers and share in the excitement.
  • Participate in fair activities, whether it’s entering a contest, joining a dance, or simply cheering on competitors. Your enthusiasm contributes to the vibrant energy that makes the fair so special.
  • Offer a helping hand when you see someone in need, whether it’s assisting a lost child, helping someone carry their food, or just holding the door open. Acts of kindness foster a welcoming atmosphere and ensure everyone leaves with happy memories.
  • Finally, saying thanks goes a long way. Putting on a county fair requires many people, many of whom volunteer to make it better for you and your family. A simple thank you goes a long way.

By incorporating these small, thoughtful actions into your daily fair routine, you can help create a better, brighter experience for everyone. Enjoy the fair!\
