Fair Traditions

img_2134

The East Perry Community Fair is happening here in Altenburg this Friday and Saturday.  It has always been a special week for this area.  Thousands of people come to partake of the events that take place as part of this fair.  Plenty of food, fellowship, special events, and entertainment will abound.

Today’s blog will consist of some photos from past fairs.  For the most part, I will let the photos speak for themselves.  As always, I encourage comments.  We would love to hear your stories about past fairs.
