    Tioga County Fair
Family fun and free entertain
ment are the bill of fare all week
long at the Tioga County Fair on
Monday, August 8 through Satur
day, August 13. Several new at
tractions to this year’s fair are a
petting zoo and Cousin Huey. The
petting zoo will offer kids young
and young at heart the opportunity
to see and feed many of this area’s
farm animals.
Cousin Huey will bring you lots
of laughter and fun as he takes you
back to the days of strolling sales
men, traveling from town to town
distributing their goods. Although
his truck is full of fruits, vegeta
bles and products reminiscent of
days gone by, the only things Cou
sin Huey will be selling are stor
ies, jokes, and plenty of entertain
ment. So whether you want to just
stand and watch Cousin Huey as
he travels the fairgrounds, or if
you want to tell a joke or hear one.
