About this Article

County fairs are just part of summertime traditions. From tractor pulls to bull riding to livestock competitions, county fairs give city folks a real taste of country. Some fairs are even going a little upscale with local wineries and microbreweries as part of their attractions. At the Lake County Fair, the Chicago Flower & Garden Show is returning with a special exhibit that will appeal to gardeners and flower lovers alike. So mark your calendars, and get ready to go to the fair.
