It’s Lorain County Fair Week!

Yummy, Yummy Fair Week…elephant ears, cotton candy, caramel apples! In addition to the fair staples, the Lorain County Fair is actually a great way to sample some of Lorain County’s restaurants. Bread N Brew, Mama Jo’s Pies, Midway Oh-Boy, and others are on hand to show you their specialties.
