The Centre County, Pennsylvania, county fair is one of the last remaining camping fairs in the country. Tent sites are so coveted that are inherited and often appear in wills. In most cases, the same family has camped in the same spot for more than 100 years. The fair lasts a week. For more information visit the Grange Fair website.

I have such fond memories of the Warren County fair, back where I grew up. I was involved in 4H, so this was where I lived for a week. County fairs back there are a dime a dozen though, so our tent sites are not all that coveted. I LOVE the picture of the pig tail. Haha!

I love the quilts! Nothing like a county fair...

Beth Kephart 9/2/09, 7:31 AM  

I adore events like these. An that curly tail is fabulous.

Julie P. 9/2/09, 7:35 AM  

I love all of the atmosphere at fairs! The picture of the tail is just adorable.

Oh that little tail...so cute!

Love the swirly tail shot.

Oh to be able to visit that fair would be wonderful... Most county fairs are so much about rides now and not about craftmenship also... and wee piggie tail is cute

I love the quilts - always - I can get quite lost in every stitch. I must say, though, that the piggie tail might have been more of an attraction for me. (Great piggie tail photo!)

Wow! Thanks for the background. It's fair season here, too, but nothing that intense (at least for the casual spectator). Love the quilts, too!

Meghan 9/2/09, 4:20 PM  

Oh, awesome, glad you took some pictures! The quilts are gorgeous.

Amber 9/2/09, 4:37 PM  

Thank you for the details... I was very curious about the tents. That curly-Q tail is adorable!

Marie Burton 9/2/09, 7:28 PM  

Wow how awesome! And I love that curly tail, LOL!

Buckeroomama 9/2/09, 7:34 PM  

I'd always wanted to visit a county fair. (No such thing where we live, unfortunately.)

Oh, how I'd love to get one of those quilts! :)

Thanks for stopping by.

The Big E is the agricultural fair around these parts and it takes place in early fall. I've never been! If I get to see curly piggy tails I'd be more inclined to go.

Veens 9/3/09, 4:16 AM  

Tht tail made me SMILE :)

Lovely!!! Looks great!
I hope you guys had fun!

Robin 9/3/09, 5:14 AM  

I've never even heard of a camping fair before, it sounds so great. How amazing that the same families have been in those spots for that long!

Margot at Joyfully Retired 9/3/09, 7:18 AM  

Beautiful pictures and great to hear about inherited camp sites. Those quilts look amazing.

Melanie 9/3/09, 7:05 PM  

It's only another month or so before we have our county fair. I'm definitely looking forward to it! The fair is always a bunch of fun, despite its propensity for giving me headaches.

Melody 9/4/09, 12:01 AM  

Great pics! I love the last pic!! :P
