When my family moved from Connecticut to New Hampshire in 1980, I was 10 years old. We tried to become active in the community and meet new people.
One group I joined was 4-H. I was in 4-H until I graduated from high school, but that’s a story for another day.
While in 4-H, we used to travel to the State fairs and compete in the forestry events. The events only lasted a short time, but we would spend the entire day at the fairs. We would watch the animal shows, stage presentations, Oxen pulling, tractor pulls, go on rides, visit the exhibit buildings and oh yeah ….. eat lots of yummy food.
Now, I am not in 4-H any more and my kids do not participate in 4-H at this time, but we all love to go to the State fairs. Follow the attached link to see what fairs are going on and have some fun! NH State Fairs Link
Oh, by the way, my favorite is the Sheep Dog Demonstration at the Deerfield Fair and this year they have a Dog Agility Competition, which will probably be pretty good too.
