All’s fair at annual Summit County event
The annual event, presented July 22-27 at the Summit County Fairgrounds by the Summit County Agricultural Society, gives farmers an opportunity to display their livestock and allows 4-H members to showcase their projects. One of the farm-related activities at the fair included a pig race, shown at top with visitors cheering on the racers.
The fair also provided plenty of family-oriented activities, including demonstrations from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, motocross, a demolition derby, truck and tractor pulls, eating contests and more.
Shown at right top are some of the rides available at the fair.
Taylor Ford, a ninth-grader at Akron Early College High School, is shown at right bottom riding down the Fun Slide with her 3-year-old cousin Michael Koubek July 26. Both are residents of Cuyahoga Falls.
Below, the Great Brad Schreiber, at far left, performs a little magic for Justin and Logan Nadiak and their father, William Nadiak, while sister Ally Nadiak watches from behind.
