Sweet treats and tractor fleets at the Armada Fair

There’s only a few more opportunities to buy a big bag of cotton candy or a gooey caramel apple before the summer festival season closes. So if you crave carnival sweets and want to get your fill before fall, make sure to visit the Armada Fair next week.

armadaFor 146 years, the Armada Fair has brought joy and laughter (and food) to the Macomb County community. This year is no different. From August 13 through August 19, the festival will operate rides, host booths and provide entertainment to more than 65,000 attendees. And there’s truly something for everyone. Whether you’re interested in demolition derbies, concerts, 4-H livestock auctions, truck and tractor pulls, eating contests or carnival games and rides, the fair has all that and more.

Recently, fair organizers announced the full schedule of main events, which include:
