Columbia Heights Day hosts the DC State Fair

Just learned something -- apparently some folks are trying to organize a DC State Fair -- kind of like a state fair you might attend in the Midwest or South, and sort of like a county fair (but since District Fair doesn't have a nice ring to it, they went with state).

This year, the State Fair folks will have a tent at Columbia Heights Day with traditional state fair staples like pie contests, best tomato, and such. DCist had an interview with them, and they also have their own blog. There won't be a pie eating contest as far as I know, so no Stand By Me moments.

Another good reason to visit Columbia Heights Day, which is August 28 at Harriet Tubman School's field (11th and Irving).
