Fair season is upon us, and one area fair is looking for workers.

Gotta love fair season! I always make it a point, whenever possible, to hit the area fair circuit throughout the summer in the Hudson Valley. There are so many great fairs that the Hudson Valley has to offer. I've been to them all. Dutchess County Fair, Orange County Fair and Columbia County Fair are all great fairs to visit over the summer. I've made numerous trips to all of these fairs over the years, and its always a fun time.

Nope, I didn't for get about the Ulster County Fair. Another fun fair in New Paltz, NY that I always try to make a point to visit during fair season. I've seen a lot of great shows there over the years including former Boston singer Fran Cosmo and former Journey singer Steve Augeri among others.

Back in April, the Ulster County Fair announced exciting entertainment for this year's main stage. In addition to the many country acts (as usual for the area fairs), the fair also announced southern rock legends Marshall Tucker Band will play the main stage Aug. 3. See: The Marshall Tucker Band Playing Hudson Valley this Summer.
