Happy 60th Westport Fair
Even though Wednesday night's opening of the Westport Fair came complete with nature's fireworks and plenty of torrential showers, nothing can rain on Westport's annual fair's parade that is celebrating 60 years. It's a terrific community gathering that raises money for student scholarships and other town charities. Between the delicious food booths and unusual entertainment, this is a fun venue for the entire family that runs through Sunday, July 19th.
Attractions include carnival rides, Rosie's Racing Pigs, arts & crafts, antiques, livestock, 4H showmanship, concrete slab pull, animal tent, vegetable, canning and floral arrangements, bands and chain saw sculpture. A handmade mechanical cow is a new exhibit, this year.
Frank Medeiros will be performing with his band, Back Roads, tonight at 7! He called the Morning Show to tell us what kind of music you can expect from the show.
The annual chicken barbecue, an amateur rib cook-off and tempting fair comfort food will fill the country air with favorite aromas. The first Westport Fair was held at Westport High School in 1955, and this year, it's celebrating 60 years.
