Another item on the list of why this is a great area to live is that you never have to take traffic congestion into consideration when going somewhere. Except, of course, when it is Fryeburg Fair week. Everyone makes use of back roads to avoid the back-ups and the smart folks plan their trips accordingly to avoid getting frustrated! It doesn't matter if you like the Fair or not, it has a major impact on the region.
This year's Fair starts on Sunday September 30th and closes on Sunday October 7th. The gates open at 7 am every morning and all exhibits are open from 9 am to 9 pm. Click here for this year's brochure. There is always something to do!
I'm usually satisfied with a one-day visit. It is fun to see friends with their animals, see who won ribbons for their crafts, maybe bet on a horse race or two and of course, have some messy food! Let's hope for good weather and have a GREAT TIME!
