Do your schools close for the county Fair?

ours do, twice yearly. we have the annual Fair (which schools are closed for today) and then the Strawberry Festival, which they close for again next month. so my kindergartner is home but i doubt we'll go to the fair. seems kind of silly to dedicate a whole day off to.

  • Our county fair is in the summer, usually the first week in August, while the schools are still closed for the long vacation. It does seem a bit outdated to take an entire day off for the fair. I wonder if that goes back to the days when the county fair was a major social event. Usually the fair lasts a whole week anyway around here.

  • Where I used to live the school would be out all week for the fair. Our school started early for the year (mid August) then fair week was the week after Labor Day (Tuesday thru Sunday), and the kids got out for the entire week. The area was very rural and farming focused, and so many kids were involved in 4-H projects that they never made it to school anyway, so they just cancelled school for the week. (The kids would have multiples 4-H animals to take care of and show...)

  • Nope. We have Italian feasts here in the summer. I want to live where you live! It must be really nice that a whole community gets together! Enjoy :)

  • Nope. Our big fair is the beginning of September. It's usually winding down when school starts, or is going on the first week of school. Never heard of schools shutting down for the fair. Of course, The Puyallup Fair isn't even in the same county I live in, so that could be part of it.

    And before y'all hurt yourselves, it's pronounced Pyoo-all-up. LOL some of the town/city names where I live are unpronouncable if you don't live here.

  • Nope, but we do have Kid Day during the middle of the week when kids can get in for free. A lot of the schools in the area do field trips that day.
