We are celebrating another successful year of the Morgan County Fair, as it again brought together communities of people from all over Central Illinois. Those people support the fair financially while the great number of volunteers who help with the fair give of their time and energy — many year-round. Both are important for this annual week of fun.
The fair truly offers something for everyone. The 4-H and agriculturally focused events teach young competitors skills and discipline. Concertgoers come from all over to enjoy live music with their friends. Then, there’s the talent show and pageant, which are each beautiful displays of love and support for those participating. Of course, one cannot forget the carnival, as it not only brings back memories for those who loved the rides or eating “fair foods” as a kid, but also helps families make new memories now. The tractor and demo derby events are exciting for young and old alike.
Throughout the duration of the fair, local law enforcement and first responders are onsite to keep us safe. Plus, local service organizations and groups have the opportunity to work the gates and serve the community they love while supporting the fair.
Indeed, so many are involved with and support the Morgan County Fair. Thank you all. Also, a thank you goes the Morgan County Fair board for working so hard to make each year better than before. Enjoy this edition, which is full of many of those new memories we mentioned above!
