Earlier activities included picnicking and steamboat rides on Harvey's Lake, which was readily accessible from Wilkes-Barre from 1896 on, by way of trolley car line. To help support this line, the Wilkes-Barre, Dallas and Harvey's Lake Railway Company built the Fernbrook Amusement Park. Located on the site of what is today Offset Paperback Company, Fernbrook was an outstanding resort. Among other things, it featured big name bands and national radio and movie personalities such as Rudy Vallee, Les Brown, Glenn Miller,Wayne King,Guy Lombardo and many others. Recognized as a "Class A" Fair by the Department of Agriculture, the Luzeme County Fair remains one of the very few Fairs in Pennsylvania to be sponsored by a non-profit association. Incorporated in 1980, the Fair. presently consists of eight service clubs in the Back Mountain, the Luzeme County Extension Service and an associate group of community members. As it has for the past 56 years, The Luzeme County Fair continues to be organized and operated by a committee of volunteers which is comprised of individuals from the association members, clubs and the community. Current member clubs that are the heart and soul of the "GREEN TEAM" include: Dallas Rotary, Dallas Kiwanis; Dallas Lions; Dallas Horseshoe Pitching Club; Harvey's Lake Lions; Lake Silkworth Lions, Luzerne County Extension Service; Lake-Lehman Band Sponsors and Associate Members of the community. Annual attendance is estimated at well over 60,000 for the five day event that has become an annual family tradition. The Fair has more than fulfilled the aspirations of its original sponsors. It continues to provide funding for beneficial community activities while entertaining thousands of visitors every year as one of the most popular institutions in northeast Pennsylvania Be sure to check out the website: www.luzernecountyfair.com for more information and ways to save.
