Day Two at the Erie County Fair Itinerary
We gave you a rundown of what you should of done at the fair yesterday, and guess what? We’re doing it again today. Let’s assume you’re going to skip work today and go to the fair early. If you don’t have a job, the crappy economy has finally come in handy.
9:00 A.M.Okay, so the boss bought the excuse and instead of going back to sleep you’ve made it to the fair. Start by checking out the 4-H & FFA Poultry show at the Poultry barn. A half-hour later, see where bacon comes from at the Swine Show at the Showplex.
10:00 A.M. Stop by the World Trade Center Traveling Memorial to pay tribute to all of those who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001. This will be open all day until 10:00 P.M.
11:00 A.M. Yesterday, we told you to go to the “how to bathe a pig” exhibit. Today, you can learn how to give a cow a bath at the Milking Parlor. All these animal exhibits have probably made you hungry, huh? Stop by one of the many food stands to try exotic foods such as deep fried pickles, bison burgers, or moose nuts. If you’re not into trying new things, you can always go with the classic italian sausage or fried dough.
12:00 P.M. Now that you’ve had your fill, we can move on to some more attractions. If you didn’t see the Bengal Tiger Encounter yesterday, you’ll want to check it out right now. If you did, why not help feed a baby calf at the Ag-Sperience or witness a texting while driving simulator at the NYS Police Buidling.
1:00 P.M. You have few options now. If you’ve really enjoyed learning how to bathe animals, you can continue your education with “How to Give a Chicken a Bath” at the Poultry Barn. If that series just isn’t your thing, you can watch the Western Pleasure Horse Show, listen to variety performer Russ Keyser in the Carousel Room, watch the Niagara Frontier Dancers Association at the Community Stage, or watch the Stars of the Peking Acrobats. Keep in mind that a few of these acts will be performing at other times throughout the day andweek. At 1:30, you can also meet Barney, from the classic show “Andy Griffith.”
2:00 P.M.Check out Jerry Ward, “The Wizard of Wood” at 42nd Street near the Log Cabin. If blacksmithingis more your thing, you can watch a Blacksmith Demonstration at Ag-sperience.
3:00 P.M.Head to the historical buidling for a butter churning demonstration. On the way get a Cartoon Character photo taken in the conservation building. Now also is the perfect time to check out The Bizaree Baloonologist or the Magic of Cliff Hopkins & Kelly if you weren’t able to see them yesterday.
4:00 P.M. Head to the Community Stage to watch the Niagara Community College TanzenDance Company, or if you’d rather give a pig a bath, head to Ag-sperience.
5:00 P.M. If you want to see the 4-H & FFA Working Goat Show, head to the Livestock Area. At 5:30, you can listen to the Ramblin’ Lou Family Band at the Community Stage. You should probably grab something to eat now, because there’s some great shows ahead on the itnerary.
7:00 P.M. You now have your choice of entertainment options, choose wisely. You can listen to Big Wheelie playing rock oldies at Slade Park or Terry Buchwald (the living Elvis) in the Carousel Room.
8:00 P.M. Randy Houser is playing at the Grandstand for a free concert. This is our last scheduled attraction for the day.
Well, our guidance is done for today. You’ve followed directions well, but now it’s time to choose your own path. Remember, there’s plenty to do besides the things we list. Check out Erie County Fair’s website for a full schedule of events.
