NORWICH – Remember that time when each new trip to the county fair was an exciting adventure filled with exotic colors, aromas and sounds? To be young enough again, to see the world through a child’s eye... . At every turn, one will discover mothers pushing strollers and small hands tugging forward grown adults.
Today is Kid’s Day at the Chenango County Fair, and until 5 p.m., that scene will be set in place once again as all children under 12 are admitted free of charge.
“After entering, each child will be given a passport. These cards are stamped at 12 different locations. With every stamp, some of the booths will give out free ice cream, a sticker, a lollipop, or something like that – the idea is to get the kids all around the fair,” explained Fair Board President Mary Weidman. After all 12 stamps have been collected, the child will be given a free ticket for any midway ride.
