Enough already.

For an hour or two or three, it’s time to forget about politics and elections, recessions and unemployment, terrorists and global unrest.

Fall is in the air in North Georgia, and the Cumming Country Fair & Festival is in town. It’s time to relax and enjoy life a little.

While the early weeks of autumn are filled with fairs and festivals of all sorts in the mountains of North Georgia, no event offers a better opportunity for affordable family fun than does the Cumming fair.

Now in its 16th year, the fair sets a standard for excellence in planning and execution that others envy, due largely to the vision of city officials and the tireless efforts of fairgrounds director Dave Horton and his staff.

The local fair provides a perfect blend of musical attractions, rides and midway games. But what makes it truly unique is the nod given to the area’s history with features such as the Indian Village, Heritage Village, grist mill, cotton gin and saw mill.

All of the features are housed on a exceptional permanent fairgrounds site that is the envy of many other communities.

The local fair always has a strong public safety presence to ensure safety, and making any visit to the fair enjoyable for those of all ages is clearly a priority for all involved.

If you’ve been to the Cumming Country Fair & Festival in the past you’re likely to want to visit again, and if you haven’t odds are you’ll be impressed with your first visit.

The troubles of the world can take a back seat for a little while. Load up the family and go to the fair — you’ll be glad you did.
