Field Trip to County Fair

The oldest, continuously operating fair in America took Watertown by storm July 13 through 18. What better family field trip could there be?

We managed to swing through the Jefferson County Fair on the same evening Alan Jackson was playing, which only added to the excitement and hysteria. The Better Farm crew hit all the scariest rides, played all the toughest games, and defied the largest crowds we've seen on this side of the North Country. See the full photo album, along with the other shenanigans of Summer 2010, here.
