Time for the Chelsea Fair!

The 2008 Chelsea Community Fair begins Tuesday, August 19. With the great weather we've been having all summer, this is sure to be a good one! (They always are, come to think of it.) Although, every year we have at least one thunderstorm, so be sure to have both a Plan A and Plan B for attending the fair this year.

Here are some details to save you from looking it up:
  • Location: Chelsea Fair Grounds
    20501 Old US-12
    Chelsea, Michigan 48118
  • Admission: $7 per day. Children 10 and under are free; Senior citizens get in free on Thursday. You can also buy a season pass for $25 which is good all week. ($15 for students and senior citizens)
  • Schedule: 10am until 10pm Tuesday 8/19 through Saturday 8/23. See the Schedule of Events on website.

    Rides open on Tuesday at 10am

Just so you know, the Chelsea Blog will be back in full swing at the end of the summer. Believe it or not, I have actually been on vacation! (Yes, I do leave Chelsea every once in a while....)

Enjoy the fair!

Haha! No need to worry... I dragged myself back without much trouble. Although I did once again get away from the computer and attend the fair last night. I am $100 poorer and the mother of two very happy and exhausted kids.
