The Arlington County Fair is going on now and continues through this weekend, giving residents plenty of chances to ride ponies, catch some racing piglets and check out hundreds of locally produced goods.
Friday afternoon, thousands of people piled into the fairgrounds next to the Thomas Jefferson Community Center (125 S. Old Glebe Road), taking in the sights, sounds and smells of Arlington’s annual reminder that the county wasn’t always an urban center.
The fairgrounds are covered in rides, arcade games and food vendors, with demonstrations happening all day and all night for the rest of the weekend. Activities include tomorrow’s 5k, performances by the Harlem Wizards and “Cows-N-Corn milking demos.”
The fair runs through Sunday at 10:00 p.m.
