What could be more American than the country fair? For more than 250 years, local fairs have been a symbol of grassroots America. They're a place to show pride in the homegrown and handmade, connect with neighbors and friends, and compete for the best draft horses and dairy cows, pumpkins, and cherry pie. Photographs of 13 country fairs in eastern and central Pennsylvania capture scenes of farm implements, sideshows, funnel cakes, cotton candy, and the magic of the midway after dark. For young and old, urbanites and country folk, regular fair-goers and rookies, this book shows why millions of people across the nation flock to the fair and continue the competitions between neighbors and friends that have gone on for years--and sometimes generations.
