Pigs, Ponies and other Fun Things at the Arlington County Fair: August 18th to 22nd

Arlington County just outside Washington D.C. is hardly the countryside.  In fact, Arlington is barely even a traditional suburb, with many areas almost as urbanized as downtown D.C.  However, from Wednesday August 18th through Sunday August 22nd, Arlington is hosting a good old County Fair, complete with pigs, ponies and other fun things!

Arlington County Fair - Piglet Race

Located at Thomas Jefferson Community Center at 3501 South Second Street, Arlington, VA 22204, the Arlington County Fair will include rides, entertainment, vendors, food, competitions, and movies -- in other words, fun for the entire family.  If you're looking for fun in Northern Virginia, you'll want to stop by the Arlington County Fair later this week.

According to the Fair website, the opening ceremonies on Thursday evening will include a performance by The Old Guard, Fife and Drum Corp, from "Pershing's Own" US Army Band. The National Anthem will be performed by a Cantor from the US Army Band.  The 2010 Arlington County Fair opening ceremonies will be preceded by a 30 minute concert featuring Downrange, a contemporary vocal ensemble from the US Army Band. 

Friday is Family Movie Night and Saturday is Teen Movie Night at the Fair.  There will be animals, food, and community organizations at the Fair.

Have a good ole time at the Arlington County Fair!

Sounds like a great time!  Those little pigs look like they are running from someone or something. LOL

Thanks for bringing something fun to the forefront, sometimes I am amazed at how we tend to miss the fun in life, this sounds like a simple fun fair, cool
