Fair Lady Synopsis
Fairs showcase all that is great in a community, the industry, the agriculture and the talents of its residents. Local county fairs blend entertainment, education, and family into one extraordinary annual festival. The aroma of popcorn, the joy of winning at a carnival game, the thrilling rides that get your blood pumping, the distinctive entertainment, and the animals that you can touch, see, (and even smell) are all components of a unique festival that has endured since the 1800s.
But what goes into making memories that last a lifetime? On the other side of the Ferris wheel are challenges and obstacles that a county fair manager must confront in order for the show to go on. The author shares her experiences, some humorous, some profound, of her 20 years leading a fair in Western New York state. Fair Lady takes you behind the scenes for an insider's peek at this historic and annual piece of the American landscape.
