Parade Of Towns set Saturday afternoon

The Wicomico County Fair will be held this weekend at WinterPlace Park.
Celebrating 81 years of fair traditions, there will be something for everyone at the three-day event.
The Wicomico County Fair serves to showcase the importance of agriculture on the Eastern Shore in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere.
Fair events will include livestock showings, carnival, Maryland High School Rodeo, educational poultry exhibits, fireworks, antique tractor pulls, giant fry pan, car shows, live entertainment, competitions, rides and amusements, equestrian activities and the Mason-Dixon Deputies sanctioned mounted shooting competition.
This year marks the 150th anniversary of Wicomico County, and for its sesquicentennial occasion, Wicomico County Parks & Recreation has partnered with the Fair to bring the “Parade Of Towns,” which will take place on Saturday at 1:50 p.m.
