Casual Fridays with Jerry Davich

LIVE FROM THE LAKE COUNTY FAIR

Share Tweet Email

On today’s show, we’re broadcasting LIVE from the Lake County Fair, inside the Lakeshore Public Media showcase tent next to the 4-H building.

The Lake County Agricultural Society started the annual fair in 1852 to showcase the achievements of agriculture in the county. Back then, it was a way for the people of the county to gather for some good fun and a little competition, the fair’s website states.

But, I wondered, what is being showcased these days at this county fair, or any county fair? We visited the fair earlier this week with one thing in mind: Compare and contrast the similarities and differences between the 21st century version and its 19th century ancestor.

Our special guests today include Ken Craft, a Lake County Agriculture Society board member, and Jeff Blomness, a carnival owner who got his start at the fair. Plus, a 4-H member and, hopefully, Monique the tarot card reader, who will read Jerry’s cards on the air.
