One of our favorite activities in the fall is attending the Topsfield Fair. This year's theme was "Sunflowers"
Children created displays of decorated pumpkins
The largest pumpkin this year was just under a ton.
We got to hold newborn chicks and
watch some hatch from their shells.
My friend the Llama.....he has fuzzy lips!
Also made friends with some cute goats.
and an Alpaca!
Then it was time to eat! A plate of freshly fried potato chips. I told the guy it was a ridiculous amount of chips.........
But I did manage to eat them all! (with a little help from my friend)
Checked out the craft area.....
maybe this should be my new winter look
It took us a while to find the sand sculpture
This cow is as happy as a pig in mud
Speaking of pigs.......
The traditional Topsfield Fair photo
One of our "must see" attractions.....Robinson's Racing Pigs
A little parade
Finally at night we stayed for some of the rodeo. I have to say it was very badly organized....but the announcer kept us laughing with all his goofs and gaffs.
Really a fun-filled day and the weather was perfect!
