To the Valley News:
Making plans for the summer? Let us help you with an affordable, educational, fun day at the Essex County Fair. All day admission (only $10. each) includes carnival rides, games, shows, exhibits, and demonstrations with free parking. Wednesday and Thursday is Senior Day – 60 & older- you get a coupon for $2. off at food vendors, so bring the grandkids.
The Essex County fair will host the only “car rollover contest” in Northern New York or Vermont. After that there will be a figure 8 race on Friday night. Talk about a thrill show!!
New this year is Essex County Fair Beauty Pageant for age 0- 12. Sign up on line. And build an outdoor scarecrow and enter it for a prize (individually or family’s). Details for both are on our website: essexcountyfair.org. There will also be a miniature horse and donkey show, dog shows two days, laser gun shooting, new games and a new carnival – East Coast Midways.
We are an agricultural fair so there are many animals showing daily from New York and Vermont. We welcome any farm families to enter and enjoy the fair. Horse show truck ins are available.
For the rednecks in our crowd we offer street legal truck pulls, garden tractor pulls the Demolition Derby and a really good country band that can fiddle up a storm (Chris Higbee and band).
Hope you are making plans to attend the Essex County Fair on July 31 through Aug. 4 in Westport. Tell your friends and neighbors.
