LITCHFIELD, Maine — One of Maine’s smaller agricultural fairs, the Litchfield Fair, winds up this weekend.

The fair’s contests, exhibits and entertainment continue Saturday and come to a close Sunday. The fair goes on this year without one of its long-time directors, Muriel Bonin, who died days before its opening at age 82. It’s the first year since 1954 the annual fair has taken place without Bonin’s services.

A fair that has grown into one of Maine’s largest, the Common Ground Country Fair in Unity, will be held Sept. 23-25. The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association will emphasize the need for political, economic and environmental action on global climate change at this year’s Common Ground fair. printed on July 25, 2017
