TRUMANSBURG FAIR KEEPS TRADITIONS ALIVE IN TRUMANSBURG, NY
I took my first trip to the Trumansburg Fair this year - specifically to watch the Demolition Derby with my boyfriend Rob, who is a motorsports guy. The fair is really reminiscent of my childhood in Guam, where we had our community fair in July every year, on the 21st, to coincide with Guam's Liberation Day.
The sounds, sights, and aromas of a Fairgrounds are quite distinct - and a bit overstimulating, to be sure. I got snap-happy (with the camera) within a few minutes of getting onto the grounds, and enjoyed taking it all in before the crowd filled the grandstand for the derby.
Being that it was my first demolition derby, I was quite excited to see and feel the energy of cars crashing! I think sometimes, "I could do something like that", but then the self-preservation thoughts kick in "I would like to protect my neck"! So for now, I'll stay safely in the grandstand and observe the action.
According to Rob, it was a very light year for the derby this year - only 3 heats, with just 8 cars each in the first two, and 12 ... more
