Lauren Williams and Caroline Costantini take a spin on the Whirlwind on the final day of last year's Benton County Fair in Bentonville. Benton County kicks off the county fair season on Aug. 7.

Nothing reminds us that summer is coming to a close -- and fall colors and cooler weather are on the way -- better than the county fair coming back to town.
