Rainy Weather Doesn’t Dampen Fun At Luzerne County Fair

LEHMAN TWP. — The skies were dark and drizzling Saturday at the Luzerne County Fair, but Mark and Jackie Love of Hunlock Creek were dry inside the 4-H agriculture pavilion.

They were volunteering at the building, which was home to award-winning artwork and plants.

Mark Love recommended visitors check out the dioramas entered in the show.

“There’s a lot of work put into them,” he said. “And also, really everything.”

Jackie Love suggested stopping by the many flowers and massive pumpkins that won awards.

They planned to walk around the fairgrounds later and grab some food. They shared another recommendation: Brisket form Uncle Buck’s BBQ.

Frank Stoodley of Old Forge visited with his daughter, Amber. They caught a magic show last year. This year, they planned to ride the Ferris wheel. They were checking out the pumpkins and seeing how they compared to the ones Stoodley’s father grows.

“We come here every year,” Stoodley said.

The Luzerne County Fair’s last day runs from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. today. Admission costs $10, and children two years and younger get in free. The fairgrounds are on state Route 118, west of the intersection with state Route 415/Memorial Highway.
