The Erie County Fair came to an end after its highly successful twelve-day run in Hamburg, New York. The weather was generally okay for fair fun and after two long years of the pandemic it was good to be back at the fair.
From concerts to food, thousands of people visited the fairgrounds to enjoy something unique or traditional. But the one thing that draws a big crowd every year is the final day climax. The World’s Greatest Demolition Derby took place on the final day and it did not disappoint. With two sessions; one afternoon and one evening the demo was filled with colorful cars and rowdy fans. There was even a Bills Mafia car decked out in red, white and blue.

We had a great time at the fair and while the weather still looks pretty warm for next week, the end of the fair equates to the unofficial end of summer here in Western New York.
But don’t come down. There is so much to look forward to this fall in the Buffalo area. The Buffalo Bills seem to be one of the best teams in the league and we can’t wait to start the regular season. But beyond the excitement around the Buffalo Bills, we have all the great fall farms, corn mazes, festivals, and some of the best weather of the year to look forward to.
I imagine the fair had a record or near record attendance. We don’t live far from the fairgrounds and the parking lots seemed to be full all day, every day.
