The Nevada County Fair starts this month and if you haven’t been to the fair, you are in for a real treat. It is a park like setting, with many tall pine trees and a small town flavor. Its hard to figure out if you are in a park or a fair, since it is so nice. I like the exhibits and love Treat Street, where all the food vendors are. You can find anything there from knishe to hot dogs on a stick. There are many local exhibits and of course the vendors booths trying to sell you anything from a trinket to whatever you might imagine.
The following is a press release from Wendy Oaks of the Nevada County Fair:
