Family Fun Activities

Family Fun Activities

Two of the main purposes of the Fair Association are 1) “we will bring the community together” and 2) “we will be innovative” – we have the opportunity to do both of those during this uncertain time. Each Friday, the Fair will be sharing some unique family activities on our social media as well as here. (Some of the activities you will even be able to enter in our competitive exhibit departments at the Fair!)
