Event Category: 

Michael Ensminger has been welding for the past decade and is certified in gas, metal, arc and mig welding. His welding capabilities range from three-dimensional sculptures to decorative functional and structural art.

His work has an industrial appeal stemming from the environment he's worked in and the media he's worked on. Michael enjoys creating pieces out of media that others may consider scrap and also enjoys knowing that those pieces will be around long after he's gone.

Each piece is marked on the bottom with his initials M.E., and they are one of a kind.  Always up for the challenge of new projects, Michael loves the challenge of large-scale sculptures.

Event Category: 

Seth was diagnosed at 21 months as autistic and at age 18 was evaluated resulting in a career recommendation of "dry mopping".  At age 20 he took his first art class and by 23 was a featured artist on The Today Show.  Now 33, Seth has exhibited at the Cleveland Clinic, The Natural History Museum, hospitals, museums and universities throughout America.  In 2011, Seth came in first place in a world-wide United Nations competition and his art was placed on a postal stamp to promote autism awareness.  Internationally he has exhibited in Galapagos, Cayman, Curacao, Kiev and The United Nations.  In August Seth and his mother Debra will spend 30 days in France while his art is exhibited in several provinces across France.  

We will move into The Sustainability Center after the opening ceremony to cut the ribbon and open the art exhibit.  Cake will be served in celebration of the exhibit.  Seth and his mother Debra will be on site to meet and greet visitors.  Debra will give a brief presentation on Seth's "journey into art" and the challenges and rewards of autism. As it turns out, two of Seth's favorite things are amusement parks and wind turbines.  We got that!

Event Date: 
Tue, August 6, 2019 (All day)
Stage: 
Event Category: 

Carl Jara is a lifetime resident of the greater Cleveland area. He attended high school knowing full well that he wanted to become an artist--taking and retaking every art class at school. In an act of desperation, his art teacher sent him to work with the stage crew.  There he met Tom Morrison, then a firefighter and President For life of the International Association of Sand Castle Builders. Tom took Carl under his wing, teaching him the basics of both sandsculpting and business. Carl moved on to study Fine Arts at the Myers School of Art in Akron, Ohio, studying Illustration and Graphic Design, all the while working with Tom and being introduced to a community of professional sand sculptors he never knew existed.

When it came time for his Bachelor of Fine Arts exhibition, he realized that illustration and graphic design were not his true calling.  What he did have was a desire to sculpt. His fifteen foot sand sculpture in the school gallery graced the front pages of local newspapers and was broadcast across the region on the evening news. It was the defining moment that launched his career.

He now holds nine World Championship medals, at least three dozen medals from other contests, and has been featured twice on Sand Blasters on the Travel Channel. He's worked and competed in eleven countries, more than two dozen states, and continues to carve out his living in sand.

In addition to sculpting, he accepted the position of Exhibits Artisan/Technician at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, where he gets to use his creative akills in a completely different manner.  He's helped install Sue, the largest T-Rex ever found, as well as articulated Lucy, one of the oldest hominid fossils yet discovered. So if you're ever at the Museum, give him a shout... you might just get a behind-the-scenes tour!

Weighing in at over 2000 lbs, when you talk horse power, the Belgian Draft Horse is the measure by which all breeds must be judged.  While occassionally a bit temperamental, for the most part Belgians are gentle giants.  That said, given their awe-inspiring size and strength, they can be pretty much whatever they want to be.  They've pulled our wagons and plowed our fields, so we owe these enormous equines a sizeable debt of gratitude.  We humans are just along for the ride.

RACE MEET NOT SCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY!

Come on out for Harness Racing at the Cuyahoga County Fair on Tuesday, August 6th, 2019.  Pick a pony, then pony up for some pari-mutuel wagering.

So long as the track is safe for racing, this is a rain or shine event!

And if you're attending the Cuyahoga County Harness Races on Tuesday, August 6th, be sure to visit with MGM Northfield Park's Bob Roberts from 3:30PM-4:30PM at the Grandstand for Handicapping 101, in which Bob will offer insights on how to read a race program, while providing pari-mutuel wagering tips.

Betologist Bob RobertsBob Roberts is a native Clevelander who grew up in Willowick. He knew he wanted to be a sportswriter when his father took him to an Indians game and he asked who those guys were typing on a countertop behind home plate in the upper deck of old Municipal Stadium.

"They're sportswriters," said his dad. "That's their job." 

Roberts began his career at the Mentor Morning Monitor before heading over to The Willoughby/Lake County News-Herald where he was named sports editor in 1970 at the age of 22. Roberts was hired by The Cleveland Press in 1973 and returned to The News-Herald when the Press folded in 1982. The Cleveland Plain Dealer hired Bob in 1985 and he remained there for over 20 years before accepting a buyout in 2006. 

Roberts has won numerous awards. They include best harness story in North America, best Preakness story, a Golden Quill for feature writing in western Pennsylvania, and more than 10 state-wide writing awards in Ohio.

So what's all the buzz about?  Well, bees of course.  The oft under-appreciated honey bee is responsible for pollinating much of the world's agriculture.  They also produce honey... a favorite of both bears and people.  Given their declining populations due to disease, lack of diet diversity, pesticides and other factors, honey bees have been in the news over the past decade, which makes it more important than ever for bee-keepers around the world to help reinvigorate the honey bee population.  Needless to say, if there were no honey bees, we would all feel the sting.  So come check out our hive and learn how honey is extracted from honey combs.  You can even buy some of the honey produced on the fairgrounds--a sweet treat to help support our resident bee-keepers!

Imagine the person that was sitting next to you just a few minutes ago is now up on stage and can’t remember their own name! Or better yet one of your friends is up on the stage claiming that their belly button was stolen. Then with a snap of David’s fingers they enter back into a hypnotic trance. Sounds entertaining huh? This is just the beginning of what to expect in the show. 

No one is forced to volunteer. David will invite anyone who wants to get hypnotized to join him and fill the 15-20 chairs that are on stage. In just a few moments your friends and the rest of the volunteers fall into a hypnotic trance. Then the fun begins! 

It is comedy like no other. Mainly because YOU and YOUR FRIENDS are the stars of the show!
