Opinion: It's Lampeter Fair Season!

It's finally beginning to feel like fall! Yes! I think fall is my absolute favorite season. Fall to me means sweatshirts and cozy sweaters, pumpkins, jumping in piles of leaves, barn parties, and most of all, the Lampeter Fair!

If you don't live in Lancaster County, the Lampeter Fair is by far one of the most fun events in the fall. This year it the fair is 26, 27, and 28 of September which is so soon and it has me really excited. I want to share my favorite things to do at the Lampeter Fair!

My favorite part of the Lampeter Fair is having an early dismissal on the first day. It is the most fun that we have all month!

I usually grab a few of my friends and we walk over together and go through all the tents so that we can get as many stickers as possible! Oh and we never forget to stop by the Herr's stand and get our free chips!

Another activity that I always look forward to doing at the Lampeter Fair is watching one of my best friends show her pig! She always does such a great job! Her little sister and older brother also show pigs, so if you have the opportunity to go to the Lampeter Fair, go and see the pigs!

One really popular activity to do at the fair is the pig catching. This is an activity for all ages where basically your age group goes into the arena area with greased arms, and they let one or two pigs/piglets (depending on your age) and everyone chases them to try to catch them!

The prize for the one who catches the pig is money! I have never done the pig catch before because I always found it intimidating to do it while everyone is watching you! But it is a very fun thing to watch, and hey, if you're outgoing like that you should definitely try it!

I hope to see you at the Lampeter Fair!
