The first fairgoers went to the fair in the fall because farmers had their crops in by then and had time to take the family to see new farm machinery. Today they come for the great diversity of attractions. They want to consume the apple dumplings, elephant ears, funnel cakes, ice cream and lemonade; to see the pigs, rabbits, goats and horses; to get spun and flipped on the midway rides. They come for the music, to enjoy the fireworks, to compete to win a blue ribbon, to watch the square dancers, the unicyclists and wood carvers. Come on down to the Cuyahoga County Fair today!
