Introducing Throwback Thursdays!

In the world of social media there are many trends and fads floating around. One of the more popular weekly celebrations on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter is Throwback Thursdays. People partaking in the “festivities” will post a photo of themselves from years past, whether it be a baby photo, kindergarten graduation, or their parents’ wedding photo.

The Erie County Fair, as it prepares for its 175th Fair in 2014, has been digging through the old photo albums too and we want to share some of our old throwback photos with all of our devoted fairgoers. So, each Thursday we will be posting a photo from past Fairs on our Facebook page along with a description of where the photo was taken. It will hopefully bring long time fairgoers back to the past to relive some of their favorite Fair memories as well as teach our younger guests the long history the Erie County Fair has shared with WNY.

For our fairgoers who do not have Facebook, we are posting all of the Throwback Thursday photos and descriptions here. Feel free to comment and add your own memories right here on the blog.
