All the fun of the fairs Summer 2010

Posted by on Friday, 6 August, 2010

It’s fair to say the great State of Connecticut is home to almost 50 agricultural fairs from July through October. Fairs featuring tractor-pulls, delicious fried-dough, carnival rides, best-in-show farm animals, petting zoos, baking competitions for the foodies and a lot more! Best of all – they’re so local you can add them to your Staycation To Do List.
