FRYEBURG, Maine — Maine’s biggest agricultural fair kicks off Sunday with the promise of more than 4,000 animals, harness racing, pig scrambles, 165 food booths, exhibition halls and a midway with more than 50 rides.

This is the 159th year of the Fryeburg Fair, which runs eight days before wrapping up next Sunday. The event draws close to 200,000 people each year.

Fair organizers say one of the fair’s top attractions will be “Energy Row,” where companies involved in wind power, solar power, wood pellets, wood and corn furnaces, geothermal power and other renewable energy options will set up and display their products.
