The Erie County Fair is a staple of life in Western New York. It’s the third-largest county fair in the nation; last year, the Fair drew a crowd of over one million people.

This year, we’re sure it’ll be more of the same. Oh, sure, you have to do a lot of walking in August heat — but after polishing off a full piece of fried dough (or fried Oreos, fried butter or fried anything else), a little exercise will do you good!

Check out the video below for a little taste of the Erie County Fair’s 2012 opening day. The Fair runs until Sunday, August 19. Drop by our booth in Slade Park and say hi!
