The 2013 Schoharie County Sunshine Fair is a weeklong celebration of farm life and summertime. This year's entertainment lineup includes everything from tractor pulls and monster trucks in the grandstand to live music and dancing every night in the party tent. By day, kids and adults can traverse the grounds to enjoy Rosaire's pig races, a petting zoo, juggling demonstrations, and the works of Brian Ruth, a chainsaw sculptor. The fair's parade, which takes place on Wednesday, July 31, at 6:30 p.m., will be led by the Beekman Boys, Schoharie County natives and winners of the The Amazing Race.

Bright red tapestries cover almost every surface at Aladdin's Restaurant and Hookah Lounge, setting the scene for a celebratory meal. The kitchen crafts classic mediterranean dishes, such as falafel and gyros and hummus, all served in a bi-level space trimmed in natural wood accents. Post-meal hookahs send fragrant clouds into the air, and on weekends, belly dancers invite diners to get up and dance to lively music.

The fun center is available for drop-in fun or special events and offers skating lessons for all ages.
