It’s fall fair season, and the 37th annual Country Celebration offers two days of family fun for all ages.

Held at Campbell Valley Regional Park on Sept. 19 and 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., experience the charm of this old-fashioned country fair with horse-drawn wagon rides, a giant straw bale maze, old time country games, and live animals.

This year’s fair showcases entertainment and activities from cow milking demonstrations to pottery making, kite-making, storytelling and horse drill demonstrations.

The popular market will feature local farmers and artisans as well as exhibitors providing information on their local community projects.

Musicians, Scottish country dancers, and roving performers will provide day long entertainment, including 5 on a String, Deanna Knight and the Hot Club of Mars, and children’s entertainers Bobs and Lolo.

Admission is $3 for adults; $2 for children ages 7 to 12; and free for children 6 years and under and seniors over 65.
