Fairground activities often depend on the time of the year. To cover yearly expenses, many property owners offer more than one event throughout the year. Most of these events require a small entry or parking fee. They use that money to cover expenses, such as carnival maintenance or upgrades to stages and concession stand areas.
In the winter months, they may hold indoor auctions, art collections or flea markets in heated buildings. Flower shows and home improvement exhibits are common in the spring when the weather improves. Summer and fall are optimal times for concerts, livestock auctions and county festivals. Some properties have tracks for stock car races and demolition derby events.
County festivals offer a variety of attractions. These events bring community members together. There are carnival rides, concession stands and games. Kids love tossing darts at balloons to win prizes. Special activities like pie eating contests, cooking contests and talent shows are popular. Kids love the petting zoos where they feed and pet animals they may not normally encounter. Adults love the stage performances featuring music, comedy entertainment and acrobatics. Teens love meeting friends and seeking thrills on mechanical rides at the fairgrounds. Carnivals are a fun experience for people of all ages.
Many carnivals offer discounts if you purchase tickets in advance. Attending the festival on the first or last day can also cost less. Amusement festivals please children and adults. Spend a day with family and friends. Eat delicious foods from a variety of vendors. Check out local exhibits and products. Don't forget to get souvenirs and handmade goods, because you'll want lasting memories of your trip to the fairgrounds.
