The BEST Fries At the Fair....Jim's Fries!!!

The BEST Fries At the Fair....Jim's Fries!!!

One of the major reasons that I love the Fair so much, is the wonderful Fair Food that is out there!!!  I LOVE it all, BUT the one that gets my vote this year (and many other years too) is none other than Jim’s Fries!

There are many stands on the Fairgrounds that sell fries, but to get me to buy more than one, they have to be OUTSTANDING!  And yes, Jim’s Fries meets that standard and definitely-positively exceeds it!

There are a few choices for your fry order. You can have regular fries, you can have sweet potato fries, and you can even have cajun fries!  Doesn’t matter which one you choose on your day at the Fair, they are all perfect!

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over: National Crackdown on Impaired Driving is Underway

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over: National Crackdown on Impaired Driving is Underway

 

As summer winds down, law enforcement organizations across the country are ramping up enforcement efforts as part of a national crackdown on drunk driving. This high-visibility campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, is a partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to curb impaired driving and save lives. 

From Aug. 21 through Sept. 7 (Labor Day), law enforcement partners nationwide will show zero tolerance for drunk driving. Increased state and national messaging about the dangers of driving drunk, coupled with checkpoints and increased officers on the road, aim to drastically reduce the toll of drunk driving.

Elvis at the Erie County Fair!!

Elvis at the Erie County Fair!!

 What a surprise for this Elvis Fan/ Erie County Fair Blogger!  On the first full day of the Fair, August 13th, there was a table set up by the US Post Office.  As I approached the area, I really didn’t know what I would find, but what a nice surprise!

In honor of the release of the new Elvis Presley postage stamp and the celebration of Elvis week at Graceland, there was a display of some Elvis memorabilia as well as being able to buy the new release Elvis stamp!  I didn’t think I would be able to get this stamp at least for a couple of weeks because of the fact that I am at the Fair every day, but this special display made it possible even for me to get them at release time.
