Opening Day of "Summer's Last Blast"
"Summer's Last Blast descends on Washington Town & Country Fair for five days of music, exhibitions, family-friendly activities, midway rides, and food. Wednesday, August 7 brings an 8 p.m. bull ride, in which competitors climb aboard bucking bovines in an attempt to stay seated for eight full seconds. The Robinson family wields power tools to create elegant sculptures in the chainsaw carvers exhibit, with demonstrations throughout the day. Meanwhile in the family fun center, a bubble-gum blowing contest allows kids to indulge their competitive streaks, the martial-arts fitness academy helps them fine-tune karate chops, and a meeting with Ronald McDonald gives them a brush with fame and corporate tycoonery.
Summer's Last Blast at the Washington Town and Country Fair
If summer could talk, it would brag about how every year, it gets to spend its final days at the Washington Town and Country Fair. The all-ages festival combines the quaintness of the old-fashioned with the marvels of modern times, much like Charlotte's Web, but with more monster trucks. Showing off the "town" part of Town and Country, classic rock and country stars perform on the main stage, while the Midway twinkles and rumbles with carnival rides. The fair shows its "country" side with livestock pavilions, farm mechanic exhibits, and Agriland, where wee ones leans the joys of farm living while participating in pig chases. Adults get to cheer on monster truck rallies, tractor pulls, bull riders, UTV, and motocross races.
