“Chevy Court will be the perfect place to shake your hips and sing along to classic tunes during the afternoon of the New York State Fair’s first Monday,” Acting Fair Manager Sean said Wednesday. Hennessey, in a press release. “We are thrilled that Chubby Checker is able to return to show us all how ‘The Twist’ is made. We are lucky to have this musical icon join our variety of musical artists!”
