Your Guide to the 2013 Lake County Fair

It is time for the 2013 Lake County Fair! The 85th Annual Lake County Fair will be July 24-28, 2013. From livestock barns, competitive exhibits, the Chicago Flower & Garden Show attraction, fabulous food, thrilling amusement rides, and entertainment, the 2013 Lake County Fair will “Let the Good Times Grow”! Plus, the Budweiser Clydesdales will be making an appearance on Saturday and Sunday. I have always had a good time at the fair. A few years ago my favorite part was watching the banana derby which will return this year. If you have never seen it before, it is hilarious. These monkeys race around a track on the backs of dogs. One of the funniest things that I have seen. They do about 3 laps and afterwards you can get your picture taken with the monkeys. Here is a video from the fair the last time they were here. Below the video you will find the schedule of events. I hope to see you out at the fair at some point this weekend.
