Sharon’s Very Special Gift From Bradley and Jayden

While at the Fryeburg Fair, there were so many vendors there! They were selling everything from clothes, sunglasses, shoes, hats...you name it!

Sharon’s First Time at the Fryeburg Fair!

What a BEAUTIFUL day it was yesterday! A perfect one for the very first day of the 162nd Fryeburg Fair to open on yesterday.

And what a fair it is!

You can't see it all in one day. Heck, you can't see it all in a WEEK! I ran into my friends Ricky and Tracy Austin of Norridgewock and Patty and Randy Dicker of Albion. They are both spending the week there in their campers. How lucky are they? But for us, we only had the day so we made the most of it!
