The food section is filled with tantalizing smells that let us know right away we’ll be eating our way through the midway. You just can’t beat fried clams or fish ‘n chips at a country fair, and there’s homemade ice cream, strawberry shortcake and apple crisp to boot. There’s plenty of junk food, too, but I try not to see it!
Going through the animal barns is entering a whole new world for this city gal. There are species there I have never seen before, especially of the two legged variety. Wonder if my farmgirl daughter has any of these chicks.
To my amazement, the Union Fair had a circus that was a real family affair. Talk about a variety of acts, there was everything from magic to acrobatics to juggling to walking on swords and swallowing fire.
For me, the highlight of the fairs is harness racing. From what I’m told, a successful driver can make a tidy sum during the fair season. He won’t benefit from my money, however, cause my bets are pretend, and it’s a good thing because I’m not very good at picking winners.
Who would guess that Maine has introduced me to so many new things? Here, life is enjoying simple pleasures.
