One consolation for all the Back-to-School ads that signal the end of summer – already? – is the beginning of fair season. Who doesn’t love these fried-dough, tractor-pulling, livestock-filled annual events?
One of the largest and most popular is just around the corner, the 2013 Haddam Neck Fair, which runs from Friday, Aug. 30 through Monday, Sept. 2, at the Haddam Neck Fairgrounds, 26 Quarry Hill Road, Haddam Neck (Rt. 151 East Hampton CT)
A schedule of all the events – from the skillet-throwing and beard contests to live music and the Haddam Neck Fair 5K Road Race (and so much more!) – is available online at the official site http://www.haddamneckfair.com
You can also pick up a program guide at the information booth, located near the blue and white poultry barn and the outdoor dining area. You can also buy souvenirs here, and there will be helpful staff to answer your questions.
