Hardin County Fair

hardin-county-fair-2014

Sometimes we’re always looking to find a way to create those ‘special moments’ that our kids will remember 30 years from now.  The fair is that kind of memory to me and I completely LOVE the fair.  The only difference is where I am from (Columbia, SC) the State Fair was the big deal and it was in October each year.  So, with that said, it is taking some getting used to having the fair be in July in the heat of summer but amazing memories and fun can be found at the fair no matter the time of year.

Hardin County Kentucky Fair

Admission is $10.00 per person
