The Hometown Country Fair is a place where families can relax, where people can fundraise for clubs and organizations, and where children can enjoy the day till their hearts are content. On Apr 27, the CV County Fair was held at Crescenta Valley Park.

There was no cost to attend the event. The Country Fair was booming with lively music, and many came to fundraise for their clubs or organizations.

Many clubs and organizations also got the chance to publicize and show the community what they do in their programs. The CV High School music department and their robotics program also took part to show the community what they’ve done over the school year.

Everyone working for the fair this year were all volunteers from the Board of Directors. The Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce put together the events, the shows and the activities.

The CV County Fair had various activities for families to enjoy. They had food, dunking tanks, petting zoos, Kona Ice trucks, bouncing houses and more.

“I really enjoyed watching people dunk my principal,” said middle school student Michelle Chung. “I didn’t want to dunk him, but I thought it was really fun to see him get dunked by kids and I had a enjoyable time at the fair.”

The CV County Fair also had their annual dog parade where contestants showed the audience tricks and great qualities their dogs had. The audience voted for their favorite dogs.

Everyone working at the CV County Fair were volunteers who wanted to help out at this family-oriented event. The fair has many opportunities that can guarantee a day worth of fun. “I want people to have fun today,” said the president of the CV Chamber of Commerce, Michael Riley.
