Maryland State Fair

Ah, summer may be winding down, but the Maryland State Fair is still going on and may be the perfect counterpoint to that early wakeup call your kids will have on Tuesday. Relive memories from your own childhood and make new ones with your kids while enjoying the rides, eating funnel cake and corn dogs, viewing the exhibits, taking in great concerts and much more. The Fair is open until Sept. 3 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., $10/adults (12-plus), $8/seniors, $6/children (6-11), children under 6/free, marylandstatefair.com
