Livestock, Ferris Wheels and 4H oh my!: Barnstable County Fair, Falmouth, MA

The Barnstable County Fair

1220 Nathan Ellis Hwy
East Falmouth, MA

Reasons to venture:

  • the hugs at the Great Bear Show sent shivers down my spine and made my oldest want to run off to the circus.
  • I can't believe they didn't ask me to judge the "Novice goat trainer" contest. I almost owned a goat once, but I didn't think customs would like it on my return from the Gambia.
  • We missed Eddie Money, the Monster Trucks and the Demolition Derby so we could hit the Ferris Wheel. We hit that wheel hard, I mean, way up there.
If you could judge any county fair contest, what would it be?
