If I am elected to the PA House on November 7, I think one part of the job I would greatly enjoy is the opportunity to be the state representative for the Washington County Fairgrounds located in the Village of Arden in Chartiers Township. In addition to what the fair does to highlight the county's agricultural community, the week-long event also brings together some of the county's best community organizations, artisans and vendors.
The O-R had an article today on some changes and added attractions at this year's Washington County Fair.
Of course, one of the best assets of the county fair is its proximity to the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum. I know many people who have made a tradition of parking at the Trolley Museum and using that old-fashioned transport to take them to the fairgrounds gates. (The Trolley Museum also draws volunteers from far and wide. It's not unusual for the volunteer trolley conductors to come from out-of-state just for fair week.)
