It's county Fair time in New England. Lava Report

Any of you from New England know this time of year is Fair time. From the small town fair to the county fair to the Big E ( Eastern States Exposition).

I personally really enjoy the smaller fairs. I know some of the people, the food is home cooked and some of the contest are for nothing more than bragging rights.

I'm hoping to get to more of these on Lava and post up some other reports.

The Littleville Fair






The big contest of the day was the ox pull.


The crowd in the grandstands for the ox pulling.



Husband and wife teams.








Those blocks are 1200lbs, the first 2, the others are 1000lbs.


Here is a video of the pull

The cow judging contest. Some the the cows need a lot of coaxing.

The smaller guys had their contest too.









This guy was in charge.



This guy had the best doo.



There were vender there too.



Arts and crafts


Hot tubs



Farm equipment



After looking at al the livestock I was getting hungry.

Everything was home made. I know some of the ladies running the kitchen and they were cooking all week to get ready.


"Yes dear what would you like? Ok I'll get that for you. Peppers and onions and cheese ok? Something to drink? OK hun that will be $6. Thanks love have a great day"


Yep, homemade sausage with peppers onions and cheese.


Lava was the only bike there.



I wonder how she would do pulling 8000 lbs





After I left I was headed to Heath for the Yankee Beemers Rally just for the day.

I found some nice dirt roads.






Ha they only have one horse power



Always have to stop to smell the flowers.




More fairs this weekend
