"The six day event provides friendly competition among neighbors and a wholesome, educational atmosphere for all ages," states the fair's website, http://www.masondixonfair.com. "Farmers and small gardeners can compare their produce at one central location. Children can learn to appreciate quality food products and farm animals. Our youth program is especially designed to encourage both boys and girls to exhibit in all categories of baking, canning, cooking, needlework, vegetables, plants and animals."

The fairgrounds are where Maryland Route 165 turns into Pennsylvania Route 74 right at the state line in Delta, Pa.

The midway gate opens nightly at 5 p.m. General admission is $4 through Thursday and $6 on Friday and Saturday. Children 6 and under are admitted free. Ride all amusement rides for $18 plus general admission.

In addition to farm animal and home grown produce exhibits and shows, there will be tractor and truck pulls throughout the week, a fireman's parade at 5 p.m. Saturday and fireworks scheduled for 10 p.m. Saturday.

Next up will be 27th annual Harford County Farm Fair running July 31 through Aug. 3 at the Harford County Equestrian Center in Bel Air.
