This weekend was the annual Country Harvest Fair in Millersville. Farmers and exhibitors came from all over the region to show off their prized livestock and produce. The community greeted everyone, exhibitors and fair-goers alike, with friendly hospitality. For three days over the weekend, the Millersville Fairgrounds were alive with a riot of color and noise as people flocked to see the animals, enjoy the food, browse through the exhibitorsí wares, scream in delight on the Medway rides, relax and enjoy the eveningís musical guests, and generally experience the fair in all its variety.
