What can be said about the Will County Fair after 110 years? It’s a summer staple for many Will and Kankakee county residents.
And while Will County isn’t the rural area it used to be, city folk still take pleasure from seeing what the best the 4H and farming communities have to offer. And maybe take in a ride or two. And see a real rodeo. And maybe have a beer. Or two.
Old and new — country and city — forge a bond on the last weekend before Labor Day weekend.
It’s one of summer’s last hurrahs.
