West Michigan July Fairs and Festivals
There's nothing like the smell of Elephant Ears and the buzz of kiddie rides.
It could be said that a county fair is the ultimate cross-section of humanity because it's a reminder of what life is really all about - having fun.
Be sure to take the kids out and enjoy at least one of these festivals this month.
You can pet a goat, test your archery skills, play Bingo, eat a deep-fried banana and jump on a trampoline, and yet you probably won't be the strangest person there.
