Pennsylvania Fairs Guides Now Available, Says Hess

Rep. Dick Hess (R-Bedford/Fulton/Huntingdon) is encouraging residents to obtain free copies of the 2009 Pennsylvania Fair Guide, which is now available at his district offices. 

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.
“Pennsylvania fairs are part of a long heritage to many families throughout the Commonwealth,” Hess said. “Each year, county fairs bring together local communities to showcase local accomplishments.”
It is estimated that several million visitors will attend Pennsylvania fairs this year.
Whether an individual is a fan of harness racing, carnival games or animal exhibits, this booklet can be a useful tool to find entertainment close to home. Fifteen of this year’s fairs will feature harness races.
The annual Pennsylvania State Farm Show, the largest indoor agricultural exhibition in the country, will be held in Harrisburg and is currently scheduled for Jan. 9 to 16, 2010.
“I encourage the constituents of the 78th District to pick up a copy of the Fair Guide and visit some of the fairs that are taking place across Pennsylvania,” Hess said.
For a free copy of the Pennsylvania Fairs Guide, visit Hess’ Bedford office at 133 South Richard Street, Bedford, phone 814-623-9097; or his McConnellsburg office at 314 Lincoln Way East, Suite A, McConnellsburg, phone 717-485-4430.
