It's a strange thought knowing that we went almost 2 fulls years without visiting one of Maine's many agricultural fairs. The pandemic has been an adventure, to say the least, but it has really made us look at the good in sometimes mediocre situations.

Now that Maine's Agricultural Fairs are back in full bloom, the fairs are seeing record-breaking numbers, causing long lines for both food and rides. This shouldn't come as a shock to most as we have all been cooped up for the better part of two years. However, you should know that there are some other big changes, not just crowds and lines.

According to the Fryeburg Fair Facebook page, the Fryeburg Fair is making a few BIG changes. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic and safety concerns, the fair will not be offering rentals of any sort, which means no strollers, wagons, scooters, or wheelchair rentals. The Fryeburg Fair understands this is a big change, but it really is the safest option.

If you know any with young kids and need stroller rentals or those in need of wheelchair rentals, please let them know that strollers and wheelchairs WILL NOT be available at the Fryeburg Fair.
