When I was growing up in Peoria, Illinois, one of the highlights of my summer was going to the Heart of Illinois Fair. I especially liked seeing all the cows, chickens, pigs, horses and other animals on display. During the summer many counties in the Illinois will hold county fairs.
One of my favorite county fairs is the Lake County, Indiana fair just over the border in Crown Point, Indiana. The fair is held on acreage with large beautiful, old oak trees. 4-H is still a big deal in Lake County with many kids exhibiting their animal projects.
