Friday23 Washington County Fair GREENWICH The excitement of the Washington County Fair continues this weekend, ending on Sunday, Aug. 25. With agricultural exhibits, entertainers, a rodeo, amusement rides, vendors and food,

the fair has been held every summer for the last 123 years and is the thirdlargest county fair in the state. “There’s not as many people farming and they don’t have that history,” said Mark St. Jacques, the fair’s general man-

ager. “But here you can see the cows and see what it’s like to raise animals and what it takes. You can see the pride people have in raising these animals.” Throughout the week, fairgoers will have the chance to see and learn about all sorts of livestock. More than a thousand different animals will call the fairgrounds home. There are nearly 600 cows, 200 sheep, 70 rabbits, 200 chickens, and 100 horses, not to mention pigs, ducks, peacocks, and even a few reindeer. Many farmers will answer questions about their livestock and attendees can walk through the cow barns, meet horses, watch juried animal shows, gymkhanas, and even see cows being milked. They may even get the chance to milk a cow themselves. There are concerts every night, magic shows, aerial acrobatics, and pig races. There is also a full slate of motor sport events, ranging from garden tractor pulls to a demolition derby. “All the entertainment is family friendly,” St. Jacques said. And of course, most families will at some point make it to the

midway where children or the young at heart, can enjoy games and the nearly 40 amusement rides for all ages. Admission costs $10 for adults and is free for children 13 and younger. A week-long pass will cost $30. Parking is free and there is handicapped parking near the gates and courtesy rides will be offered to those who need them. Sunday is Family Fun Day, when children will have the opportunity to enjoy unlimited rides from noon until 9 p.m. for $20. Fair hours are noon to 11 p.m. through Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday. More information is available at u

Opening Reception HOOSICK FALLS An opening reception for a new art exhibit and a blues concert will be featured at The Armory in Hoosick Falls starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 23. From 6 to 8 p.m., join artist Donna Maria de Creeft for the opening of her new exhibit “Microbiology” in Gallery 90. Ms. de Creeft’s artwork includes a series of “Humanist Prayer Flags” and collages. Based on Tibetan prayer flags, they are also like books, pages strung on linen thread, each one a volume of mixed-media collages. The flags are “humanist,” she says, “because they are about many of the things that make us human – our cells, our powers of observation, our relationship to the natural world, and our ability to rationally, and even irrationally, make sense of our existence.” Donna de Creeft is the daughter of the world-famous Hoosick Falls sculptor Jose de Creeft (1884-1982). Her parents bought their house in Hoosick Falls in the 1940s, using it as a summer home. Donna de Creeft attended four years of elementary school at a one-room schoolhouse in West Hoosick. She now owns her parent’s house, and continues to be inspired by the natural
