“Catch the Fun at the Chesterfield County Fair

Due to the high participation by Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in the Grand Parade on Tuesday night in the past few years, the CCFA Board of Directors has voted to expand the opportunity for all Scouts in the Heart of Virginia Council to enjoy a no obligation night at the county fair! The new event will allow youth to have time to take in more exhibits, attractions, entertainment and the midway!  We are hoping to give our Scouting community a special thank you for all their community involvement and a special thanks to the many Eagle Projects and service projects that have helped us improve our fair over the past hundred years!
