2023 Sandwich Fair
The Sandwich Fair is a time honored family tradition in the NH Lakes Region and Sandwich mountain community. First, you got the blooming onion tent, the deep fried peanut oil French fries, the Italian sausage with the blackened casing, and bread bowl soups; you got the cobblers and the candy apples, the walnut fudge… I could go on for days. So, you’d better be putting away those weight watching tofu diets for a grease eating extravaganza.
You want a pro tip? Wash all those heart cloggers down with the fresh squeezed lemonade and tell yourself it cleansed your arteries. One thing is for certain, you got some calories in ya that will stand behind you all night long. You’re gonna need it if you’re chasing little rug rats around those rides that turn your insides upside down. One things for certain, you’ll be holding down all that rich food you’v been gorging on like a mosquito in a blood bank. If you do need to let it all out… for the love of all that’s sanitary, don’t do it atop the ferris wheel in this picture.
Next, you got the tractor pulls and these dudes mean business hauling around enough torque to drag your house through hurricane Katrina. Slide on over to the animal stables and check out the gerth on some of those pigs that look like they’ve been fed the candy apples since March.
Feeling tired from going wicked hard? Well, head on over to the grand stand and listen to some live music, where your kids will start begging you for a nutella and fluff quesadilla from the food truck that’s usually up that way. Maybe send them over to the rabbit pens, inside the barn, where they can beg you to bring one home until you’re so exhausted that you actually consider it just to hush them up.
Last but not least, Walk on over to the craft barn and check out the interesting wares being sold from handmade jewelry, to carvings, to artwork, and my favorite, maps.
