It’s Guilford Fair time

This sheep, from Split Rail Acres could be saying baa or ahh, having just been shorn at the Guilford Fair.

GUILFORD — It must be fair time. The smoky-sweet aroma of kettlecorn popping over open flames is in the air.

Corn dogs, fried dough dusted with confectioner’s sugar and other tempting golden, deep fried and sweet goodies are on the menu. All this while browsing the midway at the Guilford Fairgrounds. Between bites, you can take in a country music act, see a thrilling acrobatic show, watch the oxen pulls, check out ribbon-winning fruits, veggies, pumpkins — all locally grown and fresh baked pies. And of course visit the animal exhibits, a favorite with the young set, and you won't want to miss the rides.
