It's here. The Benton Country Fair. Even though it does kind of unofficially mark the end of summer... at least the end of summer coming soon, it's still fun to go and experience.  Last year we were not able to have the fair, but this year it should be the "fair as usual".

The fun starts tomorrow (Tuesday) with bands on the Beer Garden Stage.
