Fryeburg Fair

Near our chalet in New Hampshire is the small town of Fryebrug (Maine).  Every year this is the venure for an extrordinary and enormous agricultural fair.  The fair lasts for a full 8-days and includes everything from cooking demonstrations, blacksmithing, plowing competitions, horse racing, steam engines, ox-pulls, sheep shearing, a best christmas tree competition, and, of course, lots of country music and fried food.  We went on 'woodsmans day' which features various competitions for male and female lumberjack-types (cross-cut sawing, tree climbing, axe throwing, etc).  It was a wonderful family atmosphere and the fair is extremely well run.  We were especially impressed by the cleanliness of the rest rooms and the piped music therein!.  I suspect that we will return in future years because there is so much to see and we barely scratched the surface.
