The Washington County Fair starts today! 5 fun things to try

ticket infoThe Washington County Fair starts TODAY —  Tuesday, Sept. 1, in Fayetteville and we’ll definitely be there.

If you’re new to the Fair, here are some things that belong on your must-see list:

Take a ride on the wild side. Most of the kids (both young and old) LOVE hitting the rides. And we mamas love snapping a few pictures of our little adventure-loving kiddos on the carousel and the more daring stuff, too.
