It is indeed that time again, when local young agriculturists present the culmination of a lot of hard work, whether it be a stockmarket goat, lamb, hog, or steer; a handmade gown or tailored shirt; or the best biscuits a 9-year-old can create. The Garrett County Agriculture Fair will feature all of that and more next week, Aug. 1 to 8, in McHenry, where the traditional thrill rides and special food will also be available. The fair will open on Saturday, Aug. 1, for entry day and tractor pulls, and on Sunday will be the annual fair queen contest. The rides will open on Monday at 11 a.m. A full schedule, with all featured performers, contests, and other events, can be found online at www.garrettcountyfair.org. Photo by Fabian Green.
