This community event, filled with music, food, and agricultural-inspired activities, truly emanates the spirit of the Town of Heath and the surrounding Hill Towns.&nbsp; The 2017 Heath Fair, happening Friday, August 18 to Sunday, August 20, is extra special because it will be the 100<sup>th</sup> one!</p> <p>In honor of this milestone, the organizers of this event, the Heath Agricultural Society, have added some new activities. On Saturday, there will be a zucchini race, where participants will decorate a zucchini, plug a set of wheels into it, and send it down the track in hopes it will cross the finish line first! <a href="http://www.heathfair.org/new-for-100th/" target="_blank">Click here</a> to see all the new added events for 2017, including a goat parade and a raffle for hot air balloon ride.</p> <p>Traditional Heath Fair events are planned for this year, as well, such as the tractor pull, fireworks, horse draw, cattle pull, wagon rides, square dancing, and more. Live music will include performances by Small Change, Sweetback Sisters, and Patty Carpenter &amp; the Dysfunctional Family Jazz Band, to name a few.
