I think more people should go to the fair! It's a great event locally here in the Tri-Valley and over the past few years has been a good host for its customers. When you're home from college over the summer, you can go watch the fireworks or enjoy the carnival rides and feel like a kid again. I think that's something nowadays that may seem old-fashioned, but I recommend it!
