The 175th annual Seneca County Fair opens today and runs through Saturday.
The fair features free admission to the midway. Exhibits and displays of 4-H horses, rabbits, poultry, swine, sheep and goats are some of the highlights. There will also be fireworks, a rodeo, live music, and two demolition derbies.
In addition Cornell Cooperative Extension of Seneca County will celebrate its 100th anniversary with a showcase of the county’s agriculture tonight in Floral Hall. Several area chefs will be working with local food producers to create culinary dishes to sample. The chefs are from the Knapp Restaurant, Stan’s Waterloo, Cafe 19, Wegmans, and Wild Harvest Table. They will match up food from Rosenkrans Beef, Riegel Farms, Lively Run Dairy, Cassim Farms, and Muranda Cheese. The fairgrounds are on the corner of Swift Street and North Road in Waterloo.
