Fair time in Carroll County

Real Estate Agent with Lloyd & Day Real Estate

County Fairs are times to get outdoors and enjoy meeting old friends, viewing the fruits of labor of your neighbors, and having fun.  The Sandwich Fair opens Saturday, October 10th and runs through Monday, October 12th.  Many people come back to the Sandwich Fair every year so that it has become, not only one of the nicest agricultural experiences of the year, but a place to meet and greet old friends.  As you wander around the fairgrounds you will see exhibits of all kinds, ranging from draft horses and oxen pulling enormous loads,to poultry and rabbits, to the finest of handcrafted rugs, sweaters, baskets, and much more. 

The midway is located apart from the exhibits and has the usual array of rides and games of chance.  And, last but by no means least, is the delicious food.  (We don't count calories on Fair Day.)  The aroma of chicken and ribs wafts from the Barbeque; popcorn pops; onion blossoms abound; soups and chowders are served in bread bowls; sausages sizzle along with their companions. onions and peppers; fried dough is slathered with butter and cinnimon; pizza slices are everywhere.  The list of temptations is endless.

This all takes place in the middle of Center Sandwich Village at the foot of the beautiful Sandwich Mountains where the fall colors are at their peak, ablaze with reds, greens, and golds.  Highlights of the weekend are the Saturday morning parade of antique cars that winds through town and the Sunday Parade of everything imaginable including clowns, animals, floats, The Over The Hill Gang, and so much more.

Do yourself and your family a favor and visit this last fair of the season in beautiful Center Sandwich this weekend.  You can find more information at www.sandwichnh.com/fair.

Thanks for the comment on my "Fair Blog".  It is nice to hear from folks who appreciate them.  There is so much work by so many people who get involved in them.
