Cornell Cooperative Extension has planned a Putnam County Country Fest and 4-H Showcase full of family fun and entertainment.
The weekend kicks off Saturday, July 29 at 10 a.m., with the 4-H Cloverbuds and longtime 4-H friend musician David Amram under the pavilion at Veterans Memorial Park in Carmel/Kent.
The New York Cruisers will return, weather permitting, in addition to a craft show featuring local artists, as well as vendors galore, live music, food trucks and lots of activities for the kids (and adults).
Arrive early for the miniature pony rides and stay late for a helicopter landing.
On Sunday, July 30, there will be horse and dog showmanship demonstrations, touch-a-truck, an apple pie bake-off and the second annual duck derby, where the winner will receive a 50-inch Samsung HD 4K smart television.
Special guests The Nimham Mountain Singers will perform live at noon.
