LEHMAN TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Riding the rides at the county fair makes you feel like a kid again.
WBRE28/WYOU22 Eyewitness News reporter Caroline Foreback gave kids the mic so we could hear their excitement first-hand.
Sunday was Family Day at the Luzerne County Fair. The last day of the fair was fun for the whole family, especially the kids. The final day of the fair offered a special discount for families, giving many kids the chance to take home some prizes.
“Mr. Unicorn, Mr. Turtle and Mr. Pineapple,” Kassidy Cheponis said, showing off her prizes.
And allowed them to ride all the rides the fair had to offer one last time.
“The little rollercoaster,” Kinley Lyons said.
“There’s a rollercoaster that looks like a dragon,” Nell Johnson said.
“Flip around and spin and it goes up and down,” Jayden Lyons said.
Their excitement was contagious. One brave bunch found surprises around every corner in the haunted house. Despite their screams Armani Lloyd, Madison Lloyd and Dynique Vann were all smiles when they came out.
“Oh my gosh that was scary,” Armani said.
“I didn’t like that,” Dynique said.
Five-year-old Mia Hernandez couldn’t wait to get on the bumper cars with her dad Jay. She was ready to show off her competitive side.
“It’s just nice to be out, hang out with the kids and the wife. We had fun didn’t we Mia?” Jay said, to which Mia replied: “Yes!”
Sunday night closed out the Luzerne County Fair and it just a matter of months they’ll start preparing for next year’s fair.
