If you grew up in the New York Tri-state area in the 1980s and owned a television, then I am sure you are well-acquainted with this ad for the Greater Westchester County Fair. I am not sure what sort of music the theme song is, maybe hoedown music, but whatever it was it was an earworm that wouldn’t leave my ear all summer. A couple of times I asked if my family could take a trip there, but it was met with little enthusiasm despite the promise of “rides, attractions and non-stop action.”
It felt oddly out-of-place to advertise the fair in such a countrified manner since it was being held Yonkers, but for me, that only added to the mystique.
Here are two commercials with the same music that ran during the 1980s.
