Last Chance for the Montgomery County and Prince William County Fairs
From fests to parades, there’s always something going on in and around the DC area. Us locals are a little spoiled, especially since visitors often save for months or spend their life savings to come here when we have access to the greatest tastings, festivals, fairs, and events year round. Don’t be afraid to venture out to fests in the ‘burbs. You can have some fun, enjoy some good eats, and breathe some fresh air (for a change). This weekend is the last chance to enjoy the The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair and the The Prince William County Fair. Enjoy!
