The fairs just keep coming – first there was Lee County, then Ogle County – and this week belongs to Carroll County, where the 5-day fair opened Tuesday and runs through Saturday at the fairgrounds in Schell Park, 28374 Milledgeville Road in Milledgeville. The fair offers a showcase for 4-H’ers and other folks who put their talents and hard work on display, and other favorites will fill the fairground, too. Among them, the demolition derby, chainsaw carving, pedal and tractor pulls (from pedals to garden to the big machines), wrestling, and more. And it wouldn’t be a fair without fair food and a carnival. Go to carrollcountyfair.info for more information.
