About the header image: October 3, 2012

This week's header image was sent in by Nicole Karr of the Springhouse Woodshop blog ( and shows the Bloomsburg Fair from the Skyride.  We would have ran with this photo for last week's #NewHeaderWednesday selection, but we received it too late!

The Bloomsburg Fair ran from Friday, September 21st through Saturday, September 29th.  This was the 157th year for the Fair.  It touted successful numbers despite taking a year off to clean-up and recover from the devastating September 2011 floods.  I would recommend watching the Mike Stevens' video learn more about the recovery.

One of the new additions to the fair this year was the Skyride that Nicole rode on.  According to WNEP, the ride is 12 minutes long per direction.  It costs $3 dollars to get from the main entrance to the rides and a round trip ride costs $5 dollars.
