Fair season is upon us and the biggest event in our region, the Franklin County Fair, gets into full swing on Sunday, with fair vendors and rides open today. It’s a special event that rightfully deserves the support of the entire region, not only because of its entertainment value, but for the positive economic boost it provides as well.
County fairs have been around for a long time as the concept can be traced back to Roman times. In recent years, families look forward to the fair every year. Parents have fond memories of going to the fair from their childhood days and children today will form fond memories of their own. Family time at the fair is priceless.
