It takes dedicated volunteers, vendors and organizers to make the Albion Area Fair happen every year. The 2022 Fair is the 77th such event, so hat tip to everyone who has pitched in and helped over the past 3/4 of a century.
Albion’s merry-go-round, which was built in 1890, delights those who ride it. Did you know that this is considered to be the 3rd oldest operating carousel in the U.S.?
Balloons are waiting for darts to find them so that giant prizes can be won.
The newer merry-go-round is bright and colorful.
“Hoop Zone” is ready to go.
Sunset over the Fairgrounds is almost as beautiful as the celebration itself.
