Get ready, set, Fair!

Get ready, set, Fair!

The Blue Hill Fair opens on Thursday, August 31, for five days of fun, food…and more fun. But before the gates open at 4 p.m., crews have to set up the rides and games, above, and the exhibition spaces begin to arrange their displays, from hand-sewn quilts to green beans. By the time the first fairgoers step inside, the fairgrounds will be alive with animals, music, and the bright lights of the midway.
