Yesterday we spent the afternoon at the Topsfield Fair. It was a gray cloudy damp day but that didn’t matter. We enjoyed the smaller crowd, got a fantastic parking space and enjoyed not having to wait in any lines, well except one. I don’t know that we would have gone to the fair this year if it wasn’t for two things. First N got a free pass from the library for participating in the summer reading program. Second Teresa made me enter my Celestarium shawl. I had asked Teresa if she was going to go to the fair and she said she wasn’t going to be able to make it this year. I feel really badly about this so I thought I would give Teresa and anyone else who is interested a Visit to the Fair. Enjoy.
We saw so many animals at the fair. There were bunnies, guinea pigs, chickens, ducks, cows and pigs. N had a great time watching the chicks hatch. They were so tired once they got out of their egg.
We saw the giant pumpkin which weighed over 1700 lbs. It was huge. The Husband didn’t think it looked very much like a pumpkin since it was more flat than round and more white than orange.
There was other fruit and vegetables. Giant watermelons were placed with the huge pumpkin. Among the regular sized squash there was a giant zucchini.
There were baked and canned goods too.
The craft section was amazing. There was everything you could imagine.
Look at this hat!
And this shawl! Hey, that’s mine and it got a ribbon!
And where did we have to stand in line? The Husband wanted a deep fried Snickers and there was a bit of a line of people waiting to get their treats.
We had such a good time that we are already planning our visit next year.
