City Photo - The Fair in Cumming

Cumming Fair Grounds


Photographed - 9/05




Sorry, I had to use an older photograph for today's post. The weather is just dreadful here. It's been raining all day. The rain gauge on our deck shows a little more than an inch and a half so far. The rain is bad enough but, together with the temperature (36 F) it was to messy for me to be out.

This is a shot of the Forsyth County Fair at the Cumming fair grounds, It's a big deal here for a week in September every year. There are rides, food, shows and vendors selling their wares for people to see. It draws a big crowd each year, There are many festivals like this in the fall throughout the United States. They came about originally as a celebration of the fall harvest. People would bring their prize fruits, vegetables, cakes, pies and livestock to exhibit and sell. This part still continues today but, to a lesser degree.

I hope for better weather tomorrow, Have a good evening.
