The last day of this year’s fair
This Labor Day marks the final day of the 2012 New York State Fair. Have you had your fill yet?
Maybe you were one of the estimated 25,000 that packed into Chevy Court Sunday night to see The Band Perry! The country group put on a great show, and it really looked like the crowd was enjoying it. It did feel pretty packed, but it didn’t stop people from having fun.
There is still a lot of fun to be had! You can check out the New York State Championship Demolition Derby and Double Figure 8 Race at 4 p.m. It’s at the Grandstand for $10. Or if you are looking for some free family fun – check out the Walker Brother’s Circus! It’s in the Adventure Zone, with several shows that last about 45 minutes. Since you’ll be in the area, visit the Eudora Farms petting zoo and enjoying interacting with the friendly animals!
There is still plenty left to explore around the fairgrounds. I’ve gone every day this year, and it’s wonderful to know that there is still a lot to see.
