Annual Montgomery County Agricultural Fair

During the week of August 13th, Montgomery County residents celebrated the end of a hot summer at the Montgomery County Fair Grounds in Gaithersburg. With over forty rides, endless food, and 4-H animal demonstrations, fair goers found something fun to do well into the night. These photos were taken on the evening of August 16th.
