Every summer during mid-August, Armada is host to the Armada Fair – now in it’s 137th year! This year the fair runs August 18 – 23, 2009. The Armada Fair is an agricultural fair and the culmination of 4-H’ers for Macomb County that are involved in various projects including livestock and misc arts. The Armada Fair provides something for everyone: livestock shows, food, midway rides and entertainment. Did you know that Michigan’s agricultural industry contributes nearly $73.1 billion annually to the state’s economy? Please join us for lots of family fun! We’ll be there with our dairy goats!
This past weekend I visited the Michigan Fiber Festival in Allegan, Michigan. What a feast for any fiber enthusiast – so many creative folks, fiber and animals in one place at one time. I learned so much just chatting with vendors who’s passion for their ‘craft’ is overflowing!!! FUN FUN FUN Mark your calendar for next year – always the third weekend in August.
On a sad note – life on the farm is filled with wonder, and at times tragedy – we lost our Shetland ram, Testiamo, to a freak accident. He’s resting under our old apple tree…we’ll miss you dearly!
See you at the Armada Fair!
