As summer goes rushing by it is nearly time once again for the Cuyahoga County Fair with all its wonderful sights, sounds and smells. There is the Mid-Way with all types of games of chance and “Fair Food”. Hundreds of exhibitors will be on hand in the various buildings to talk about their businesses and organizations. There is the huge and varied array of farm animals to view as well as antique farm equipment. Flowers, garden produce, honey, arts and crafts, collections and rides make for a very entertaining day geared for the entire family.
