Gotta love the fair ...

August 11, 2008 - Lee Smith
The Martin County Fair kicks off this week (8/12 — 8/17). I am a huge fan of the fair. I like the food, seeing the animals, the atmosphere, spending time there with my wife, playing a little Firehouse bingo, etc., etc. But what I think is most attractive about the fair is its momentum from year to year. That is, other people like it as well, so it becomes an annual gathering place. It's like a giant town festival that Fairmont really hasn't been able to put together otherwise. But "everybody" goes to the fair. It has a nice mix of attractions for young and old to help create the draw, which generates income, which helps the fair stay relevant. I commend those who put together this annual event, and those who volunteer time and effort to make the fair what it is. Signing off, looking forward to a pork chop on a stick and a chocolate shake ...
