Tonight's the night at the Albion Fair by Ryan Smith

"Saturday's the night to come out."

Walking around the Albion Area Fair the other night with my lady and baby and taking it all in -- loadsa greasy-good fair food, wild-looking rides, experimental-breed goats and cute-as-hell piglets, and tons (and tons) of people -- I heard that said more than once.

So, apparently, that's what's up -- and that's tonight.

The fair, now in its 70th year -- held at Albion's beautiful old borough park (which, with a permanently-installed, 100-plus-year-old carousel, is worth checking out anytime) -- kicked off earlier in the week; ends tonight; and, as most fairs around the area do, features an array of agriculture-driven exhibits, ride-o-rama-ness, great bad-for-you food and other cool stuff.

It's also one of the busiest ol' fairs this guy's ever been too, for sure -- I mean, people everywhere.

All-around, "it ain't beat," one Albion guy I know told me.

Pretty much.

If you wanna head on out to the fair, but are looking for some more info on it aheada time, just call the fair office at 814-756-3911.
