The Fryeburg Fair starts this Sunday the 4th through October 11th this year, and we are here in the region all starting to see more signs of fall: Trees are turning color more and more, the air is cool in the evenings and morning even though we have been spared our first frost as of yet, and the sun is now setting close to 6:00pm here in the Maine Lakes Region. We all endured some of the heaviest rainfall in a 36hr period we have seen in years this week – 5 to 7 inches locally and regionally, and most of us were blessed to not be underwater as a few spots in downtown Portland were for a few hours. Understanding your property and how your land may fair during difficult seasonal weather, is prudent awareness that we here at Anne Plummer & Associates advocate for all of our customers.

Back to the Fryeburg Fair this coming week, Monday is the annual Woodman’s Day, and here are schedules for you:

The day-long Woodsman’s competitions are a great tradition, with men and women from all over the country coming to compete with the world’s best. Some of the evening entertainment this year has last season’s winner of The Voice Craig Wayne Boyd on the main stage Tuesday evening, along with other big names like Clint Black performing during the week on Thursday evening this week. Expect lots of traffic from Windham to Fryeburg this year, however we do not expect things to look like the same kind of “busy traffic jam” as this classic photo of Fryeburg Fair Traffic on the Naples Causeway from many years ago!

Get out and enjoy this early fall weather and enjoy our Maine Lakes Region!
