Like they used to be in my hometown of Stockton, California, that is...Not in Canada, where the fair/harvest festival season is in full swing -- including the 183rd Edition of the Port Hope & District Agricultural Society Fair ("Farming, Food & Fun") this past weekend. It was quite a show!

There were prizes for vegetables/fruits, and even hay bale cuts. And how about that elementary school spelling bee and the cooking demos? I was touched and mesmerized...remembering when that all happened at the San Joaquin County Fair, which is now just a shadow of itself and on the brink of extinction.

Looking forward to the 184th Edition ("Denim Dreams")...Meanwhile, planning to visit the Roseneath Fair (9/26-28) and the Wesleyville Harvest Festival (9/28), too. In Canada, that's a Hat Trick!
