TALLMADGE — Visitors to the Summit County Fair enjoyed rides, games, entertainment and carnival fare and also an opportunity to learn about farming.

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.

Jeremy Goodwin, of New Franklin, also participated in the fair and is shown at right top with his rooster, Oliver, outside the chicken barn.

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 bottom are some of the rides available at the fair.
