As I approached the event, I knew it was one not to miss hearing the live music streaming through the town and all of the blow up jumpies for the kids to enjoy. Jackson Center is a small town with about two stop lights and the only fast food restaurant is a Subway. The main drag also has a bank, hardware store, movie theatre, small grocery store, family diner and a bar. Oh, I don't want to forget the drive through pizza and liquor store. That was a sight to see.
As I approached the fair, there was small car show at the entrance and one of the participants allowed me to take his photograph in front of his pride and joy. As I walked in the fair, it was a mixed bag of entertainment. You could bungee jump in the air, play in a sandbox full of uncooked pasta, listen to live music or get the party started by buying a "bag of beer." They were selling a party in a bag for $10. For this small fee, you too can get a plastic grocery bag full of ice and 6 bud lights in the bag.
For me, my entertainment was walking around and taking photographs of people attending the fair. Everyone was happy to be there and it was a well run fair with something for everyone. I remember going to a similar fair as a child in my hometown and taking my pet turtle, Pokey to the fair to enter a turtle race while my father entered the arm wrestling contest. Pokey won.
Summer is here so I am sure there will be many fairs in your area to enjoy. I look forward to attending many more in these upcoming months. For more pictures of Jackson Center, Ohio, click HERE.
