Fryeburg Fair 2010

Hi Everyone, I just returned from a trip to Maine over the Columbus Day weekend with my son, Kevin, his wife, Michelle, and their three girls. We all went to the Fryeburg Fair and had a wonderful time. People come from all over New England to exhibit and attend this fair. It runs for ten days. If you are ever in the area try to take it in!! I have attached snapshots of some of the events but it is impossible to see everything in one day. The pictures were taken by my granddaughter Alison.

Emily, Alison and me watching the sulky horse race and freezing. (It was very windy and cold!)

Emily, pretending that this is her restaurant.

Alison found a horse with her name. "Ali, Miss Congeniality".

Julia with her Dad, Kevin.

The highlight for us was the draft horse pulling contest.

We had a wonderful time at the Fair but it was time to move on to Antiquing! Michelle took us to her favorite antiques barn and I have some wonderful "finds" coming up for you on our website and eBay listings!

Kevin showing off his log cabin house that he built. It took many weekends but his hard work paid off!

It was a wonderful weekend full of fun, horses, laughs and antiques!
