Fair, weather, friends

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - FRONT PAGE -

Fol­low­ing a del­uge of rain Sunday morn­ing, the skies cleared just enough to en­cour­age die-hard fans of the Port­land Agri­cul­tural Fair to don boots and an out­fit they didn’t mind get­ting a lit­tle muddy and head to the fair­grounds. There, the Siz­zler whirred, the pump­kin rides spun, the Great Hill Moun­tain Band ser­e­naded the crowd un­der a tent and, off in the cor­ner, Brian Bas­com led a wine-tast­ing class as par­tic­i­pants swirled a red nec­tar in their glasses. The Dirty Ditch Mud Runs drew a large and sus­tained crowd all af­ter­noon as souped-up and mon­ster trucks roared their way into — and through — a gi­ant pond of rain­wa­ter.
