VIDEO — Scones, magnificent, oh-so delicious scones at the Clallam County Fair

ON A COOL morning, you can smell them from half a block away.

Scones are an iconic fixture at the annual Clallam County Fair every August in Port Angeles.

For nearly 50 years, volunteers have been serving them to hungry fair-goers, and for many of those fair visitors, it just wouldn’t be a fair without that simple baked pastry that can evoke a feeling of nostalgia.

Either slathered with butter, heaped with berries, jams or jellies, or eaten just plain raw — the comforting taste of a scone holds its own amid fairgrounds filled with vendors serving grilled meats, exotic eats and a plethora of deep-fried confections.

Over the four-day run of the fair, thousands of the triangular treats will be made by members of the Dry Creek Grange and gobbled down along the midway.
