This year marks the 56th year of the Cabarrus County Fair. I have never been to it personally, but my husband remembers going to it each year, while growning up in Concord. Hearing him talk about his experiences is almost like hearing him talk like he just went to it yesterday ~ the memories is nothing short of a wonderful time experiencing various rides, games, and foods! Oh, lets not forget the farm animals and other activities too. Maybe, this year would be a good time for us to take our son and enjoy it as a family.

This year promises to be the biggest Fair ever; projected attendance of 100,000 over a 9 day period.
