It was raining when I arrived at the Franklin County Fair this past Saturday, but to some Fair goers it was just another attraction.
The Roundhouse is full of flower, fruit and vegetable exhibits, as well as handcrafts: quilts, knitting, canning etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Handwork is not dead in our part of the world.
There are prizes for specimen flowers, arrangements and houseplants.
There were fruit specimens and fruit arrangments.
Fruits and vegetables preserved for the long New England winter.
There were quilts on display, and quilts being raffled off to support any number of community organizations.
Dolls deserves quilts and prizes too.
And while I was there cheerful music filled the space. Naturally, the Franklin County Youth had their own building filled with similar exhibits, including informative nature exhibits. Rides! Pie a la Mode! Robinson’s Racing Pigs! A fabulous fair.
