”Taste of the Fair” Back by Popular Demand at the Erie County Fair!!!

”Taste of the Fair” Back by Popular Demand at the Erie County Fair!!!

Food is one of my favorite things at the Fair.  I love all kinds of Fair foods!  But this is the deal.... no matter how long you have been going to the Fair, there have to be some things that you have never tried.  Sometimes you just run out of “Fair Time” to try them all.  Last year, our friends over at the Fairgrounds launched a quite unique idea.  Many Fair vendors were offering one or more of their specialty items at a special Fair price.  I thought it was a really great idea.

Sometimes you would like to try some Fair food item that you have never had, but maybe the size is too big, or maybe you are almost out of money, and can’t spend your last for a food item, but this “Taste of the Fair” gives you the opportunity to try the food for the special Fair price of just $2.  This is a great way to check out many of the stands that you haven’t explored yet.  You will have all day on Thursday, August 20th to do just that!

Counting Down???? Only 2 Months to Go to Erie County Fair Time!!!

Counting Down???? Only 2 Months to Go to Erie County Fair Time!!!

Fairgoers, if you are anything like me, you have been counting down for the Erie County Fair 2015 since the gates closed for the final time at Erie County Fair 2014!  I remember that day, a really sad day for this Fairgoer.  After spending all 12 days of the Fair on the grounds, exploring, eating, visiting with friends, and just plain hanging around, I had to leave that final night of the Fair. And leave with a heavy heart!  So hard to leave such a great place of fun and food and smiles!  It is the best 12 days of the summer for me!
