If you’ve never been to Maine, or to one of Maine’s fairs, you are missing a treat. There are two that we try to go to every year. One is the Blue Hill Fair (we missed it this year), and the other is the Common Ground Fair.
The Common Ground Fair is held pretty close to home, and it is, for us, the harbinger of autumn. Every year, Friday is free for school groups and homeschoolers, and it has become our traditional day to attend.
I’ve grown to love this fair and what it celebrates – home grown, home made, local, fresh, organic. If you’ve never had a chance to go, put it on your calendar for next September. I’m sure we’ll see you there.
