Enter The 2013 Squidoo County Fair (and volunteer to be a judge).

Screen Shot 2013-08-16 at 5.30.29 PMThere is something magical about a county fair. The fair brings together community and shares the joys of the season. A bounty of vegetables, a fresh baked pie, a collection of antique dolls.

The fair melds the past and the present and creates memories. It’s the one time of the year that you can a eat fried Twinkie or elephant ear or candied apple without guilt. There are rides and music and hard work. It’s the joy of the end of Summer and the excitement for the Fall holidays all rolled into one.

Here at Squidoo we like to have our own online version of the county fair!

This year we’ve got 5 categories to create a brand new lens in, some cool prizes and the opportunity to volunteer as a judge. So here goes!
