The Centre County Grange Encampment and Fair,
better known as "The Grange Fair," starts this week, August 27-September 3, 2009. The
Grange Fair is a city within a town, as campers "move into" the Grange
Park in Centre Hall, PA to live for more than a week. From sunup to sundown, fair activities abound including tractor pulls,
draft-horse shows, carnival rides, horseshoe pitching, a
queen contest, bake-sale auction, music shows, commercial exhibits, a livestock sale and, of course, great food!
