It's time for the fair! The 33rd annual Schuylkill County Fair starts today. This is a family (and wallet) friendly activity. Admission is just $5 for adults and free for children ages 12 and under. The fair opens at 4 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and at 11 a.m. on Tuesday and Saturday. Parking is also free.

There are fun rides, crazy cooking contests, musical entertainment, fair royalty, fun kid contests, tractor pulls, drag racing, chainsaw artists, scavenger hunts and nature demonstrations. Check out their website, scroll down to the day you want to visit and see what sort of fun things are happening. Each day has a theme:
