Crowds came Satur­day

Stanstead Journal - - FO­RUM -

were en­joy­ing slushes as they were be­ing en­ter­tained by the ten foot tall ‘Dragon Slayer’ who was wan­der­ing around the site. “How did you get so big?” asked young Madi­son Philips of the tall man that hov­ered high above the crowds, dressed in me­dieval at­tire. “I eat tele­phone poles!” he an­swered.

Mrs. Ar­cham­beault, the ma­tri­arch of the fam­ily and grand­mother of Madi­son, com­mented: “We used to go to the Brome Fair but we found it too noisy and crowded. Now we come to Ayer’s Cliff be­cause it’s more re­laxed here and there’s lots to see.”

Four gen­er­a­tions of the Cou­ture fam­ily, of the City of Ma­gog, were vis­it­ing the fair for the first time. “It’s re­ally great here. We’re glad we fi­nally came to see it,” said the grand­mother while the youngest mem­bers were be­ing cap­ti­vated by the an­i­mals at the pet­ting zoo.

The 166th edi­tion was an­other great fair, as long as the sun was shin­ing. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the vol­un­teers for pro­vid­ing an­other great week­end, for both lo­cal Town­ship­pers and vis­i­tors from ur­ban ar­eas alike, of ‘coun­try liv­ing’ at its best.
