PA Fairs Guides Now Available

Rep. Dick Hess (R-Bedford/ Fulton/Huntingdon) is encouraging residents to obtain a free copy of the 2012 Pennsylvania Fair Guide, which is now available at his district office at 133 S. Richard St., Bedford, Pa., or 314 Lincoln Way East, Suite A, McConnellsburg, or by visiting DickHess.com. online.

Published by the state Department of Agriculture, the guide lists the dates, locations and contact persons for more than 100 agriculture fairs and events scheduled this summer and fall in Pennsylvania.

“It is that time of the year again when our commonwealth plays host to one of the finest traditions we have, the annual county fairs and other events where our agricultural heritage is showcased,” said Hess. “These events are fun for the entire family.”

It is estimated that several million visitors will attend Pennsylvania fairs this year.

The Department of Agriculture also hosts the annual Pennsylvania State Farm Show, the largest indoor agricultural exhibition in the country. The 2013 Farm Show will be held Jan. 5-12.

“A comprehensive listing of Pennsylvania fairs is available at my district offices,” said Hess. “Please drop by and pick one up, or you can also find it online on my Web site.”
