Nothing says Summer like county fairs. The Midways, animals, shows, food, it is all so Summer and so New England. I am an avid visitor of these fairs and am listing my top favorites. These are perfect and affordable options for taking the kids or grandkids out for a day. Most offer wristbands to help keep costs down and the agricultural aspects of each will teach the kids a thing or two! What are your favorite festivals? Let us know in the comments below!

Barnstable County Fair – Going on now through the 23rd. 
1220 Nathan Ellis Highway, Route 151, East Falmouth, MA 02536

One of the best fairs around and is actually quite affordable if you buy the wrist bands.
