|The Orchard Lake St. Mary's Polish Country Fair|
Traffic was a little heavy near the fair, but we arrived at 6:00 p.m., when rush hour traffic usually is bad on Commerce and Orchard Lake roads. Parking is free on the school's campus, and admission is $5 per person, or $10 per family. To go on the rides, visitors need to buy tickets, but the best deal is a $30 pass that lasts the whole weekend. Visitors can also buy a book of 22 tickets for $25, or individual tickets (that I believe were $1.50 each). Rides cost between 2 tickets for the small kids' rides to 4 tickets for the most popular rides like the Ferris wheel and roller coaster.
The fair has two tall Ferris wheels, and both our daughters enjoyed the views from the top of one of them.

My kids had a great time, and the only way we could convince them to leave quietly was by promising Michigan-made Guernsey ice cream from the main tent on the way out. Upon exiting Orchard Lake St. Mary's onto Indian Trail, we were greeted with a calming sunset to conclude our active evening.
