Common Ground attracts 56,000 from far and wide
Thorndike — The Common Ground Country Fair kicked off Friday, Sept. 20, with sunny skies, warm temperatures and thousands of fair-goers turned out for the opening day of the three-day annual event.
The fair, sponsored by Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, drew a steady stream of visitors that hailed from all over Maine and New England and beyond — one license plate in the parking area carried Georgia plates.
The fair had a little something for everyone, with children's activities, a live contra dance, agricultural displays, as well as demonstrations on everything from goat milking to brewing beer. A number of vendors were also on hand to showcase their wares, and a wide variety of food options kept visitors snacking on felafel wraps, pie cones and stir fry, just to name a few items on the fairground menu.
