On the political front…the HoCoReps and HoCoDems usually have their trailers with campaign signs and volunteers staffing the trailers. Be sure to swing by and visit both…I expect them to both to be full of campaign signs given the number of candidates running this election cycle.
I try and make it out to the fair once or twice. I know I will be attending on the 12th (and maybe another day…depends on how busy I get this week). I like the closing parade (and might even participate this year). I will try and get a few photos on the days I am out and about this week.
Be sure to use the hashtag #HoCoFair on your social media posts this week.
Have a fun weekend!
