The Lyme Grange Fair Association’s 109th annual Hamburg Fair kicks off Friday, August 20th at 5pm and runs through Sunday the 22nd. The gates open at 9am Saturday and Sunday. Closing time is 11pm Friday and Saturday and 6pm Sunday.

This is a classic small town New England fair featuring pony, horse and oxen pulling, vegetable and craft exhibits, rides and of course fair cuisine. There will be live bands, blacksmithing demonstrations and an antique tractor display as well.

General admission is $5.00, seniors $3.00 and kids under 12 get in free. The fairgrounds are located on Route 156 in Lyme. The weather is supposed to be fantastic! It’s a great opportunity for a family outing and a chance to sample the offerings of one of the longest running fairs in Connecticut.
