I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

It's time for the Union Fair and Maine Blueberry Festival!

It's time for the Union Fair and Maine Blueberry Festival; an event that's

not to be missed!  As summer winds down, this quintessential New England Fair brings us agriculture at it's best.  This year's fair runs from August 20th to August 27th.  You can find more information, including daily schudules here.
There are farm animals galore. 
The latest tractors are a big hit.

There are exhibits to please everyone.

I highly recommend the fried dough!
Kids and adults alike try their hand at the midway games!
You'll find everything blueberry at this fair!

Grab an iced tea, climb into the grandstand and watch harness racing!

The track is raked.....
......and watered after each race.

Choose your favorite!
Many talented people enter their creations for judging.
Love these colors!
Some entries are for sale.  Check the tag!
Canned goods are plentiful.
Fresh vegetables display winning ribbons.
There's nothing better than fresh eggs.

This display hails from the coast.


Fresh seafood too!

Be sure to visit the livestock!

A necessity in the barn.

Truly a family affair.
Such a cozy spot to relax!

The view from the Ferris Wheel.
A great way to end the day.  If you can't visit the Union Fair, check your state for fair and festival listings!
