Upcoming Area Fairs
August is here and summer will be giving way to
fall. Two local fairs are coming up this month to signify the end of
summer: Ag Progress Days (Aug. 16-18) and the Grange Fair. (Aug. 25- Sept. 1). These two events truly show off our local
agricultural roots and are great events the whole family can enjoy. Can't wait? Head over the mountain to the Huntingdon County Fair going on all next week (8/7-13)
Keep an eye on our Community Calendar for more events throughout the summer and fall. If you have (or know of ) an event, feel free to add it.
