PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Summertime is the time for county fairs: midways, rides, games, and contests; exhibits, horse and animal shows; live music, actors, and entertainers; drawings and bingo games; dinner, refreshments, carnival treats, and candies; parades and awards; tractor and truck pulls; demolition derbies; and petting zoos. There really is something for everyone at a fair. It’s not only a good time to meet and greet your neighbors; it’s a great excuse to explore neighboring communities as well.
