It's County Fair Time

This weekend we spent a great day with our good friend and her son at the 102nd Haddam Neck Fair. I have lived in CT all my life and it was my first time at this fair. It was a real treat. There is something about a county fair that screams fall is coming. My favorite time of year. At the fair we experienced great fair food, played some carnival games, checked out all the vendors and agricultural entries. This was our first fair of the season and you can be sure we will be visiting more. 

Here are some facts about the Haddam Neck Fair from their website. Rated as a major agricultural fair, it is known for the family friendly atmosphere in a beautiful setting. The many events offer somethings for everyone including tractor and truck pulls, horse and oxen pulling contests and a horse show. Exhibits of rabbits, poultry, sheep and goats are popular. Exhibitors are encouraged to enter arts and hobbies, vegetables, flowers, canned goods and hand work. There are contests offered throughout the weekend including women's skillet throwing, beard, multiple birth and children's contests. Live music on the bandstand on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

Do you love attending county fairs? What is your favorite part? I love all the food they have to offer. 

Here's to looking forward to fall.
