Lets Go to an Old Fashioned County Fair

Orange County Virginia has a great old fashion county fair, there is no midway or lights and hype like you see at so many fairs these days.  It is located on the grounds of  historic Montpelier under old large oak trees.

One of my favorite things that I have enjoyed watching, in the past, was the chicken parade. The children load up their 4-H chickens and parade them around the fair grounds, it is great! I have also enjoyed walking around the barns and admiring all the hard work that the kids have put into their animals.

Some of the events that are planned for this year are: Kids activities, livestock show, food eating contests, live music and many different demonstrations and competitions.

If you want to have some fun this weekend come out to the Orange County Fair, http://www.orangecountyvafair.com/, July 22nd through the 25th.
