The Saline Community Fair is Here
If you have driven past the fairgrounds over the past two days, you have seen lots of activity. Animals will be arriving soon, non-livestock exhibits will be entered from 4-8 p.m. on Monday and on Tuesday at various times, displays are being set up, the food wagons will soon be parked in their new location for the next week, and the carnival rides will soon arrive. The white exhibit building and barns at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds, 5055 Ann Arbor Saline Road, Ann Arbor, will be full of action on Monday as folks of all ages enter everything from vegetables to photos, collections to arts and crafts and the ever-popular flowers, antiques, and needlework. You still have time to get those projects ready for the fair. Exhibits can also be entered from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday and then all non-livestock exhibits will be judged Tuesday afternoon. The fair book is again digital this year and can be found online. Anyone interested is invited to enter exhibits.
