Learn about the history of the Niagara County Fair at the History Center's August Family Night. It will be held from 5:30-730 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 15, at the museum's Lockport site, 215 Niagara St.
This is a change of date from what was announced previously.
Hear a brief history of fairs in general and the Niagara County fair in particular, and see a timeline and historic photos of past fairs. Then play carnival games, compete in contests, make an edible merry-go-round and share other surprises.
Everything will be kid-friendly and family-oriented. Admission to Family Night is free. A pizza and beverage supper will be available for a nominal donation from 5:30-6 p.m., followed by the program.
Family Night is open to all Western New Yorkers, regardless of residence. Reservations are required. Call the History Center at 716-434-7433.
The History Center receives grant assistance from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
