As you are planning which events to attend over the next few months, don't forget to save a day to eat elephant ears at the Durham Fair.
It began in 1916 and is the largest agricultural fair in Connecticut.
The fun always takes place the last full weekend of September and includes:
Farm Museum - At the Farm Museum, visitors step back in time as they learn about antique farm equipment and collectibles. The display includes wheat thrashers, horse-drawn buggies, and apple harvesting tools.
The Indian River Olde Time Lumberjack Show - This exciting show demonstrates the skills of old-time lumberjacks in a format that is both humorous and educational. Some of the contestants have appeared on E.S.P.N. and the Wide World of Sports, and events include ax throwing, springboard chopping, and log rolling.
Animal Pulls - Animal pulls are a tradition deeply rooted in Durham's agricultural past. The fair states that these powerful contests are a throwback to the days long ago when the animals worked the land and highlights include miniature horse & draft pony pulls and oxen that weigh as much as three thousand pounds.
Sacred Fire - This new and upcoming group is a six-piece Latin Rock Santana tribute band that really knows how to put on a show. They will take to the stage on September 23 at 6:30 p.m.
This is just one of the events that you can enjoy if you call our Rocky Hill, CT apartment community home. Please contact us to schedule a tour where you can see our amenities firsthand.
