Genesee County Fair celebrates 175 years: Race Day
A throng of fans filled the grandstands -- engines roared and the smell of victory hung heavy in the air. Thursday proved to be a fine day for racing and Raceway 5 was the stock car battleground.
The Genesee County Fair continues its 175 year history with agricultural displays, local talent and fine fair food. Children's small fingers, sticky with cotton candy and funnel cakes generously sprinkled with powdered sugar -- these fair food staples could all be washed down with a nice cold glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade.
Once again, passersby were treated to mouthwatering smells and the frequent call of Midway hawkers.
The Fair runs through July 19 with a variety of events and displays scheduled throughout the day. For event information visit http://gcfair.com/Home/FairInformation/DailySchedule.aspx .
