County Fair season in the Hudson Valley actually gets underway this week with the start of the Orange County Fair in Middletown New York. The Orange County Fair runs July 20th through the 30th on Wisner Ave. Tribute bands, Fireworks, and Monster Trucks are just some of the family-friendly entertainment you will be able to enjoy at the fair.
