Nik Wallenda is at the Erie County Fair TODAY!!!!

Nik Wallenda is at the Erie County Fair TODAY!!!!

Just a quick reminder to all Fairgoers....today is the day we have all been really looking forward to.  Daredevil Nik Wallenda comes to the Erie County Fair.  

The walk will be 125 feet off the ground and 1400 feet across the entire Fairgrounds.  This walk is about twice the length of his average walks and will be longer than the one he completed across Niagara Falls.  I know that I am really looking forward to this one in a lifetime event.

The walk will take place at approximately 8PM and anywhere on the Fairgrounds will be "a good seat" to see it all happen.  As he will be walking from the South Park area to the other end of the Fairgrounds, just looking up you will be able to see this walk from nearly anywhere!!  Watch it all, see it all, and take as many pictures as you can!!

Celebrating Opening Day at the Erie County Fair

Well, Day 1 of the 175th Erie County Fair has come and gone.  And quite a successful day it was!  There was so much going on and so much to see and do.  The ribbon cutting at each gate just made us remember what a special year it is for the Fair!!

Today's promotion was free admission with a canned good donation.  The bins were pretty full of donations and so many fairgoers got to go to our Fair for free.  The lines were circled around with fairgoers eager to see what the 175th had to offer!  And they would not be disappointed for sure.
