Fair Time

This past weekend was our local Fall Fair. The Orono Fair has been a big part of my husband's family for over 50 years.  Local families work hard to organize this 4 day event.  They Volunteer hundreds of hours to ensure that the event is popular, safe and family friendly. The weather has a huge role in its success.  This year it rained, poured really, most of the day Saturday and Sunday. Crowds we thin but the events continued!

Every year for the past 10 or so I have been entering a few things in the Cultural Expressions category. Entering for me is about showing the general public that the crafts continue to be an important part of our culture and artistic expression,  (I began to enter again when I discovered the nylon slippers from that crunchy yarn from the 70's received a First prize ribbon)

It's always fun to see what the Judges think of my entries:

Some of the results surprised me again!

There are a few more local fairs happening over the next few weeks! We will more than likely visit at least one more!

See you soon!
