County fairs abound, there aren’t too many of these agricultural events that still pull a free admission. So if you plan to be in apple country, then you must check out the Sterling Fair. http://sterlingfair.org/ This longstanding event begins this evening and runs until Sunday. You can see plenty of oxen, horse and tractor pulls if that suits your fancy. Or you can peruse the many other events including the fireworks, helicopter rides, or the largest pumpkins – the usual fare at fairs. And don’t forget to join the Chocksett Club for its annual Pancake Breakfast held on Saturday and Sunday morning beginning at 8:00 AM until 11:00 AM. ($5.00 –pre-bought/$5.50 at the door) You might just catch Greg flipping the pancakes but there is a better chance he can be found handing out stickers and selling tickets. He did his pancake flipping tour of duty last year. This is one of the Chocksett Club’s main fundraising events for its local scholarships.
So come and enjoy this stellar weekend and celebrate the Ag times in old-fashion style. The Sterling Fair appreciates and continues to run each year with the generous donations it receives from purchasing a fair button. Hope to see you there. With our little guy, Ben on the mend, it may only be Greg floating around the booths! The inspirational quote for the weekend is by Richard Hovey. “For it's always fair weather - When good fellows get together- With a stein on the table and a good song ringing clear” Enjoy the fair weather!
