Wednesday Good Things Are Growing

boiloWhat:              Everyone is invited to spend a day at the Schuylkill County Fair.  We have good things growing.”  Schuylkill county Fair has been growing goodness for 33 years.    During that time some well establish contests have developed and some new ones are being introduced for the first time this year.  What would the fair be without its ethnic diversity?  This is shown well in the Ethnic Cooking Contest.  A Boilo Competition exemplifies our regional culture.  Schuylkill Gown is a cooking contest where participants may savor the flavors of Schuylkill Grown products made up for this contest.   Rich soups and flavorful quick breads will be served to a panel of judges to determine which recipe best cast a favorable light on products grown in Schuylkill County.   A friendly game of family feud is making a return for the fun that is always being had at the fair.  Speaking of fun, don’t miss out on the  Adult Milk (mustache), Chugging and Apple Pie (in your face) Eating contests along with Adult Wet Sponge Relay and Sac Race.
