Ohio’s 2018 fair season kicks off

It is again the time of year where the attention of countless exhibitors, volunteers and visitors is focused upon the longstanding tradition of the county fair. The events are a centerpiece of summer for Ohio counties, but they would not happen without the dedication of many hours from volunteers.

“People do not really understand the number of volunteer hours that local fairs have,” said Tom Stocksdale from Wayne County who serves as the District 5 representative on the Ohio Fair Managers Association Board of Directors. “If fairs had to pay for everything that happens, they couldn’t afford to operate. So much depends on volunteer hours.”

Thanks to all of those volunteers as Ohio’s fair season kicks off this month.
