Agricultural Fun at the Ulster County Fair in New Paltz, New York
Rides, food, and fun are all part of the fair experience but something you don't want to miss while attending the Ulster County Fair is all of the agricultural exhibits including the 4H Milkshakes. From Rabbits to vegetables to antique tractors and machinery.
You can start your fair experience with a visit to the Agricultural Museum. That is where you can see a variety of antique machines running like they are brand new. This can be a fun exhibit for people who have only known machines that are run by electricity and computers.
Then once you have enjoyed a rider or two make sure to get yourself a refreshing 4H Milkshake to sip on while you tour the barns and exhibit halls full of all the hard work the local 4H has done along with others in the community that have an agricultural green thumb.
