West Lampeter Fair - Lancaster County's Fair Season

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

We spent the evening yesterday at the West Lampeter Fair, just south of Lancaster City and near Strasburg, PA.  The fair was packed and the weather was great - although the night before was quite rainy I heard. Lampeter Fair, Lancaster PA Fairs, East Lampeter Real Estate

Our boys had a great time watching the tractor pulls (yup, it's a country thing), petting the animals and playing in a "hay maze" which looked quite challenging (I wisely watched from the sidelines on that one).  We had dinner at the Lampeter Fire Company building, the proceeds going to the volunteer department.

The fairs in Lancaster County, PA are all about the tractors!  Tractors, tractors, tractors.  They make a fun subject to photograph...

There was lots of funnel cake and events to watch while eating it.  One highlight of the night was the pig-catching contest, where groups of kids are let loose in the rodeo ring to attempt to grab 2 or 3 squealing piglets.  One catch - their hands are greased and so is the pig!  Fun to watch.

Eventually, time came to say goodbye to everyone.  Another great fair season is drawing to a close in Lancaster County, PA.  Now time for the leaves to change color!  My favorite time of year.

So, did I miss an ox roast among all the amazing sounding food!  Great photos, and congratulations on getting featured.

Hi Jeff,

I loved visiting my granda's farm when I was small.  The one thing I loved was the John Deere.  My grand da thought me how to drive one when I was 12.  We used it to plough the fields.  I used it also to gather the cattle and bring the cows in for milking.  I have a big attachment to tractors.  Thanks for the flashback!!

Jeff- Great localism feature. Fairs are so fun in smaller areas where you really have the animals and such. I have seen those pig catching contests, they are hilarious. Great photos! You should enter photo contests. I am sure you would win some great awards along with name recognition! Katerina
