Last weekend we went to the Woodsboro carnival. There are a lot of these small town fairs during the summer. There is one in Libertytown coming up, and a slightly larger one in Thurmont later this summer. There is the Maryland State fair at the Timonium fair grounds in late august I think and of course there is the Great Frederick Fair in Sept. It seems odd that there would be a county fair after the state fair, but that is partially because the state fair is not such a big deal here in Maryland. The county fairs are more relavent to the locals and sometimes even bigger events.
