County Fairs

As summer winds down, a favorite activity begins within many counties of the Chicago & Beyond region.  There is something for every member of your family to see and take part in during the numerous County Fairs taking place.  Check out the variety of animals on display and see who won the prized blue ribbon.  County Fairs are famous for their special fair food, including pork chop sandwiches, elephant ears, and so much more to tempt your taste buds.  There is plenty for kids of all ages to enjoy too, such as carnival rides, games, and special displays, to mention a few.  A not to be missed event happens at the Grand Stand where they have special races and tractor pulls to entertain the entire family!
