2016 Lebanon Country Fair


August usually brings hot and humid weather to southern New England.  Along with that, the month also brings one of the first country fairs of the season – the one in my hometown of Lebanon, Connecticut.  On August 12-14, 2016, the 57th Lebanon Country Fair happened – and that weekend would bring heat indices well over 100…but that didn’t stop all the fair-goers from attending.

The weather forecast for the fair weekend called for temperatures hovering in the mid-90s, and high humidity – driving the heat index well above 100.  Also on Friday, there was a threat of severe thunderstorms – but thankfully all of the storms skirted the fairgrounds, keeping things dry, but still steamy.

The 2016 edition featured some new events – including a laser-light show, a new rodeo company (many times better than the previous rodeo), as well as the appearance of some great bands including Eight to the Bar and Jeff Pitchell and Texas Flood (Jeff is my cousin, FWIW).  Also were some mainstays of the fair – the pony and horse pulls, doodlebug pulls, the redneck truck pull and of course the demolition derby.

Instead of going through each day, here’s the full set of photos.  Feel free to click through to get to larger versions…

If you’d like to check them out, here’s a few blog posts from past years – 2007, 2009, 2010.  Some day I’ll post a retrospective of the fairs we’ve attended – the first being 2004.

Thanks for looking!
