Weather forecast: fair
July 22, 2008 - John D'Agostino
A 127-year tradition is under way at the fairgrounds in Chautauqua County. And to no one's surprise, the rain has once again played a major role in the show.
The seven-day Chautauqua County Fair, which includes the popular demolition derby, farming exhibits as well as numerous rides, runs through Sunday, July 27. Needless to say, both Monday and Tuesday saw some rains and high humidity. That, however, seems to never bother the young, who will ride and explore the grounds until it is time to head home.
Last year organizers said nearly 90,000 people came through the gates. They expect the attendance to be higher this year. And why not? The fair truly is a showcase of some of the best our community has to offer.
Our congratulations to the volunteers and the Board of Directors for the fair. Their work of the last 51 weeks is now paying off.
