Crowds came Saturday
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.
