Some excellent news this morning got me starting to think about doing things with crowds again for the first time in a while.

President Biden said we'll have enough vaccine by the end of May for everyone in America to get the shot.

If that happens, we'll be able to celebrate one of the best parts of the summer, fair season.

Last year, it didn't happen, like, at all, as far as I know. In 2021, there's going to be a reckoning for things like the fair. I believe people are so hungry for something to do, that attendance for things like county fairs is going to go through the roof.

Who's isn't ready for some fair food, like deep-fried Oreos or Snickers, a pizza cone, or just some fried chicken in a waffle cone? Not sure if that delicious grub is at any Illinois county fair but hey, if I bring it up, who knows, maybe?

If you're wondering when Winnebago, Boone, Stephenson, Ogle, or any of the surrounding areas are going to hold their county fairs in 2021, see below.
