The 20th annual Albemarle County Fair starts this afternoon, running through the weekend. It’s out in North Garden, and they hope to attract 25,000 visitors this year, due to the last two years’ fairs being rained out. County Fair organizers fear that if there isn’t sufficient attendance this year, they won’t have the money to continue. With their traditionally-excellent line-up (fire prevention contests, sawmill demonstrations, hog-calling, llamas, fiddling and wheelbarrow races…just the basics), this is a classic local event that you just don’t want to miss out on.

This is cute. The folks that run the fair are selling umbrellas, in light of the forecast rain this weekend.
