County Fair

Life sure has changed since 1893, back when the first Cuyahoga County Fair was held. Beginning today and continuing through Sunday, August 14, you can pay your respects to the good ol' days with retro faves like elephants ears, lemonade, and livestock, or with new-school fun like amusement rides, the world's largest demolition derby, and live country and rock concerts. Also on the schedule: fireworks, a haunted house, harness racing, and arts & crafts displays. "There really is something for everyone," says spokeswoman Candyce Traci, "no matter what your age or your interests." The fair opens today at 5 p.m.; bring one non-perishable food item and get in for one buck. Otherwise, general admission is $6, or less for seniors, children, and active military members. And while events like the concerts and demolition derby carry additional charges, parking is free in lots surrounding the fairgrounds, at 164 Eastland Rd. in Berea. For more information, call 440-243-0090 or go to cuyfair.com, where you'll find a complete schedule of daily events. — Hayden
