LAWRENCEVILLE — The weather is getting a little cooler and the air is becoming crisp, which can only mean one thing: The Gwinnett County Fair is open for action.

Through Sept. 22, the Lawrenceville fairgrounds hosts another week and a half of carnival rides, beauty pageants, tricky games and nostalgic food.

Families, teens and couples have the chance to jump on carnival rides, nibble on fried fair food and win prizes at the gaming booths.

If you have young ones who can’t get on all of the rides, there are several live events throughout the evening. There are comedic performances by the “Nojoes Clown Circus,” daring acts by the The Edge 2 Wheel Action Show and get a balloon animal from Ozseeker the Clown, who will be on site every day.

During the evening, live music will fill the air. This year’s artists include John Berry, Candi Carpenter, Bobby Tomberlin, Billy Crash Craddock, Waymore’s Outlaws and Leipers Fork Bluegrass.

The talk of the fair is always the Miss Gwinnett Pageant because young babies, girls and women (ranging from newborns to 24 years old) will be crowned beauty queens through Sept. 15, including People’s Choice winners.

But if sequin dresses and hairspray aren’t your thing, there are numerous livestock shows with everything from red Angus cattle to meat goats ready to be pinned this year’s blue ribbon winners.

There is a little something for everyone.
