The Clackamas County Fair is on now until Sunday, Aug. 22 and it’s a wonderful opportunity to experience rural, small town Oregon within a short drive from Portland. As urban encroachments make traditional, rural lifestyle a disappearing part of the Portland area landscape, it’s great to see events like this fair thriving. If you can make it out to Canby this weekend, here are my favorite top five things to do:
1) Eat some pie. You might think of corn dogs and curly fries as the quintessential fair food, but check out the dozen or so pie selections offered by the Canby Methodist Church ladies. YUM!
Oh, and there is a rodeo every evening as well!
