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.

  • Not for county fair because its in August. We close on Friday for Oktoberfest, only because you can't get through town at all.

  • actually, correction, it's the State fair. but i don't know that all counties in the state are closed today (i highly doubt it) but just ours because the State fair is held in our county.

  • Not the county we live in now, but DH works in the county over and those schools close for race weekends (not safe for buses to be on roads around Talladega). Also my DH is looking into getting a new job in Mobile county and those schools are out this mon and tues for Mardi Gras.

  • Our state fair and county fair are both during the summer, so it does not at all interfere with school. We have festivals here and there through the school year, but mostly they are weekends and school is never cancelled because of them.

  • No. Of course it is when school is out anyway. Late summer.

  • No. Its in August. There isnt any other festivals or anything like that either. Even if it was during the school year...they would not close school. They hardly ever close our schools. The only time they do is if it is a white out storm.
