The County Fair

Find your Local County Fair!

Summer is in full swing and that means it's county fair time!  The best part about the county fair is you will find something for everyone.  Kids can enjoy the petting farms and the big kids can enjoy evening shows such as the rodeo or the monster trucks.  Then there's the elephant ears and cotton candy that is every carni's dream. Nothing like a summer night at the fair!

There are many different county fairs to choose from within Michigan.  If you are looking for the closest one to you, click here for the list.

Oakland County Fair (July 6-15)

Detroiters may choose to go to the Oakland County Fair which is held July 6th-15th.  The Oakland County Fair is located in Davisburg and has many different events to choose from.  The fair will kick off on July 6th and will host fireworks at 10:00 PM.  Head to their site to find event details and schedules.

St. Clair County 4-H Fair (July 16-21)

Another fair located within an hour of Detroit is the St. Clair County 4-H Fair.  The fair is held July 16-21 in Goodles.  I highly recommend this fair since it is the one I've been going to since a child. You will find a splash pad for kids so bring a swimsuit and towel.

Which fair do you attend and what is your favorite thing to do at the fair?  Please share.

As “the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!” (Associated Press), RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience. In addition to the updated sets that include brand new LED, High-Definition screens and multimedia content, RAIN will bring the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album to life in its entirety with the launch of the 2018 Tour.

Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting. Let RAIN take you back with all of the songs from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band along with all of your other Beatles favorites such as “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Let It Be,” “Come Together,” “Hey Jude” and more. This adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends.
