Time for fun at the Sheboygan County Fair

SUMMER IS ENDING BUT the fun is just beginning. That’s the message everybody at the Sheboygan County Fair would like to share.

Labor Day is coming up next Monday and, in many ways (though not on the calendar), that marks the end of summer, with the end of summer vacations and tourism and the pending return to school for students.

While that could be cause for melancholy, there is a fun, five-day way to make the transition from summer to the rest of the year a little easier – and it’s right here in Plymouth.

The 2016 edition of the Sheboygan County Fair kicks off Thursday, when the gates open at noon, and runs for five full days of family fun through Monday, Labor Day, Sept. 5.

The fair always means lots of good food, fun rides and games, entertaining shows and music, and much, much more.

It means a chance to catch up with old friends and/or make new ones and to enjoy making memories with families.

But the fair is much more than just a good time – it’s a celebration and a recognition.

It’s a celebration of the people and businesses that make Sheboygan County great – most particularly the agricultural industries and farm community that are the backbone of the county.

It’s a recognition of their hard work and effort to grow and produce the foods and products that fill our tables, our shelves and our stomachs.

Also a focus of the fair is the county’s young people and their accomplishments – and rightly so.

From the school artwork and projects that fill the Education/Household Building to the animals of all shapes and sizes 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.

So enjoy a few whirls on the rides; try your luck at the games; fill yourself up with food from cream puffs to fried vegetables to corn on the cob to brats to cheese curds to grilled cheese sandwiches and more; quench your thirst with any beverage – including at least some refreshing milk – and take in the music, shows and more during your visit(s) to the fair.

But amid all that, squeeze in a little time to view and appreciate the exhibits featuring your children and/or grandchildren, your friends, your neighbors, your friends’ and neighbors’ children and/or grandchildren, and all the rest.

Because after all, that’s what the fair is really all about – that, and having one last fun time before summer is gone.
