"From Fair Dayze to School Dayze"

For my family, the last big events of the Summer are the fairs, then it's back to school! There are several fairs in my area that are worth checking out, but the one (that's not too big, and not too small) that I've been going to, just about every year since I was a young boy, is the Vermont State Fair. Located in Rutland,Vt, surrounded by the beautiful Green Mtns., this state fair offers a host of many things to occupy not only the children, but dads and moms alike. They have everything from food, games & rides, to a magic show, pig races, bear show, demolition derby (and other vehicle demos) live music, farm animals, a wildlife and forestry build., and my two personal favorites, a Maple Sugarhouse & Dairy Center, with much much more!

Fairs bring friends and family together! Explore all that it has to offer, and learn a great deal about the history, culture, and people of the area. So put aside your troubles, get off your butt, get your kids away from their video games, and enjoy the simple life of a fair! Looking back years from now, you'll be reminiscing about your favorite times there!
