Show your art at the Summit County Fair
I have always loved the Fair. It brings together people of all ages and interests to celebrate the spirit of our community. From the pageants and demolition derby to the archery competition and livestock judging. From the food and entertainment to the pride of craftsmanship and animal care. From the Fun Run and petting zoo to the senior luncheon and ice cream social.
As a kid growing up in Cheboygan (a small town in northern Michigan), I would wander through the stalls and booths each August marveling at the size of the pigs and cows, the handiwork of the quilts, the smells of hay and pie and kettle corn. I would wait in line for the funhouse and the ferris wheel that rose up over the field.
So I’m really looking forward to the next week in Coalville. I hope you’ll plan to come by.
And if you’re an artist, whether you’re a novice or professional, consider participating in the Fine Arts Exhibit managed by the Park City Summit County Arts Council. You can enter your painting, drawing, photography, sculpture or ceramics piece on Tuesday, August 9th from 4-7pm at the Fairgrounds Fine Arts Show tent next to the Quonset Hut. Awards will be given for Judge’s and People’s Choice and Best of Show. One adult and one high school painting will be selected for purchase by the Summit County Council to become part of the Summit County Art Collection. More details on entry, rules, prizes, and judging can be found at http://summitcountyfair.org/exhibits/fine-arts.
See you at the Fair.

A reader in Park City suggests a bold move — the municipal government, he says, should convert City Hall into affordable housing.
