Spend a day at the fair

This is county fair week in Isle of Wight, and if you’re new to the community or, for some reason, haven’t been to the fair in recent years, I would urge you to spend some time there.

Isle of Wight’s county’s fair has become one of the most successful in Virginia. Whether its enjoying the carnival rides, listening to evening entertainment or watching young bull riders, there should be something of interest for you and your family.

While there’s plenty of action at the fair, there are also some pretty extraordinary exhibits. The 4-H program, Master Gardeners and individual homemakers provide everything from a goat show to gardening tips and beautiful canned goods.

And of course, there’s the food. The fair is a time to forget the diet. Enjoy a funnel cake, a hotdog, barbecue, pork tenderloin and much more.
