TALLMADGE — Country life is being celebrated during the Summit County Fair, which runs through July 28 at the Summit County Fairgrounds, 229 E. Howe Road.

The fair, which started July 23, is presented by the Summit County Agricultural Society of Ohio and features agricultural displays and exhibits, as well as traditional fair activities like rides. Shown above are visitors strolling the midway at the fair on opening day.

The Summit County Fair also offers an opportunity for those who own a working farm to display their livestock and youth who participate in 4-H to showcase their projects, according to fair officials.
