One sign that Labor Day is right around the corner is the Maryland State Fair. Great food, exciting rides, live concerts and lots of 4H animals make the state fair one of the best entertainment values of the summer. Cheaper than going to the movies, and lots more fun, it’s a great deal at $8 for adults and $6 for seniors and $3 for kids 6-11.
