Mountain View Free Fair
Established in 1915, the Mountain View Free Fair is an annual community event and one of the oldest community fairs in the state. Highlights will include carnival rides, live entertainment, games, arts and crafts, exhibits and the junior and senior high school food stands. David and I enjoy the tractor pulls and the livestock shows. The fair opens Thursday evening at 6 p.m. and is open Friday evening at 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to Midnight. I love it for it’s small town atmosphere where the kids run around and the parents don’t have to worry about them.
