Was it crowded:

Yippy!

This is the last great County Fair left in the Big Apple. We go every year because the kids love it and there's so much to do. Here's the thing, they have music everywhere from rock to country and rides for the kids. They also have these crazy acts that the kids love. We like the magic and old fashioned contests. Really, there is so much to do that we are doing the three day pass this year. It's cheaper than coming back at full price. The food is reasonably priced. Lot's of walking. Friends of our didn't enjoy it as much because they never looked in the program. They missed things like free pony rides. You have to use the map because they have stuff tucked behind the old buildings. Last thing, go inside the old buildings there's cool history there and air conditioning in some.
