FESTIVAL | 2013 Monroe County Fair 

County fairs are what they have always been to rural people — a social, festive atmosphere with the chance to win a blue ribbon for prize produce or livestock. But to city folk they are an opportunity to temporarily make contact with a long-forgotten and fascinating living-off-the-land existence.

The 2013 Monroe County Fair features the expected shows of animals, flowers and vegetables, food, arts and crafts, live music, pulling competitions for lawnmowers, tractors, and horses, and a chance to meet the dairy princess. But the fair will also showcase Rochester Rampage Robotics, kid-friendly rides on the midway, and fun games for the whole family.

The 2013 Monroe County Fair takes place Thursday, August 1-Sunday, August 4, at its new location at Northampton Park in the town of Ogden at Colby Street and Hubbell Road. Hours are Thursday 1-10 p.m., Friday 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m.-10 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Tickets are $7 for the general public, $6 for seniors, and free for kids ages 12 and under. Parking is free. For more information or directions, call 262-3247 or visit mcfair.com.
