What is the main idea of this passage?

County fairs have a long tradition in communities all across America and have been enjoyed by generations of Americans. They are a place for people to gather together in celebration of community and for some good old-fashioned competition. With pie eating contests, juried art shows, and blue ribbons for the fattest hogs, county fairs create a carnival-type atmosphere for hard-working American people. Participants can make a little money selling livestock, homemade arts and crafts, or playing some of the midway games. County fairs are known for their outlandish food, games of skills and chance, and showcasing artistic and agricultural talents. Everyone should experience a county fair.
