Every August, the Star Beacon carries special articles about the upcoming Ashtabula County Fair, but COVID-19 canceled the senior fair, allowing only animal shows and junior fair events.

Even so, the Star Beacon is inviting readers to submit photos and memories of past fairs.

Remember when the fair hosted Eddie Rabbitt, or featured side shows, mud wrestling and a local baseball game? Perhaps your memories include a 4-H project, the Ferris wheel, riding in the parade  or the fabulous fair food.

Take a few minutes to reminisce and send us stories of your time there. Photos are not necessary, but encouraged. And hurry! The deadline is Tuesday.

Send memories to staff writer Shelley Terry, P.O. Box 2100, Ashtabula, Ohio 44005 or email sterry@starbeacon.com.
