Time for fun at the County Fair again

IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN. Actually, it’s a lot of times again – the Labor Day holiday weekend, the start of a new school year, the start of a new football season, nearly the end of summer and the start of fall.

But most importantly, it’s time for the Sheboygan County Fair again.

One of the county’s best annual events, the fair marks the end of the summer festival and picnic season and the beginning of a full fall season of events and activities – a perfect bridge between the two.

The five-day fair – which begins Thursday and runs through Monday, Labor Day - is a true family event, with something for people of all ages and interests.

That’s five days of fun, food, music, dancing, games, rides, shows, enjoyment and fun – all right here in our backyard.

Much of the focus at the fair is on the county’s young people and their accomplishments – and rightly so.

From the school artwork and projects that fill the Education Building to the animals of all sizes and shapes shown off and sold in the various barns to the 4-H projects of all types and varieties – some of the best of which we are proud to spotlight on the pages of The Review and the Sheboygan Falls News as well as later on in our special Winner’s Circle edition – the achievements of our young people are proudly on display at the fair and should be enjoyed by all.

But that doesn’t mean the fair is just for young people.

Folks of all ages can find plenty to view and enjoy at the fair, whether it’s sampling the variety of great food from one end of the grounds to the other; enjoying the wide variety of music offered each and every day (and evening); taking in the grandstand shows from country music with Joe Nichols to the ear-splitting tractor and truck pull and more; making contact with a number of different businesses (including, of course, The Review at our cabin in front of the grandstand), organizations and clubs; appreciating the efforts of all those who have projects or animals on display; or just meeting and greeting friends old and new.

For more than a century, the County Fair has been the highlight of the year for exhibitors and visitors alike – and this year should be no different.

Part of what makes each fair so memorable and so successful is the dedication of an army of volunteers and paid staff who ensure that everything goes off without a hitch – or get things back on track quickly and seamlessly on those rare occasions when there is a hitch.

The weatherman is promising good weather for the five days of the fair, with warm summer-like temperatures throughout, so the 2015 Sheboygan County Fair promises to be a great party and great time for all.

Yes, Labor Day weekend is considered by many to be the unofficial end of summer, but as they like to say at the Sheboygan County Fair – it’s not the end of summer, it’s the beginning of fun.
