You may notice that a few fan favorites like the Frying Pan Toss, Hay Bale Toss and Pig Races are missing this year, but with a bit of luck, if everyone behaves themselves and the United States gets COVID under control It may be back to normal next year.

Get Ready For The Orange Country Fair

The Orange Country Fair is a tradition in town, and every year it goes off seamlessly.

People may think that it’s because it’s been going on so long that it’s easy to set up and run. But it takes a village to organize such a huge two-day event and make it entertaining and successful.

On Monday, the Orange Country Fair Committee met to discuss plans for this year’s fair.

The event will take place at the Orange Fairgrounds, Sept. 20 (with the tractor pull and contest entry drop-offs), Sept. 21-22.

A Boy Scout has chosen to make benches for his Eagle project, [like the green ones shown in the photo] and they will be ready in time for the fair, so guests will have a comfortable place to rest at the fairgrounds.

Those members who’ve been in charge of specific contests or other areas of the fair know what they have to do. For example, as always, Bobby Fantarella is rounding up the entertainment for the weekend.

The Committee is hoping to obtain a few more Little Tykes Cozy Coupes for the little kids’ “Driving School.”

This is a good time for students to gather up their dioramas, photos, artwork or collections, including any that they may have made as school projects prior to summer vacation. There are so many areas of the fair where plants or any of the above-mentioned items can be entered and displayed for a chance to earn a ribbon.

Adults, too, start cultivating your plants and flowers and working on your photos, crafts, or artwork. Maybe this will be your year to take home a Best-In-Show Ribbon.

Remember that the fair runs smoothly with volunteer help. Consider clearing your calendar for a few hours on Sept. 21-22 to help out in the food tent this year. Your participation will be greatly appreciated.
