Local News
The Addison County Fair and Field Days is still going on in neighboring New Haven! Tonight are the Tractor Pulls. This is a great event you don’t want to miss. It tends to be loud and dusty/muddy though, so we wouldn’t recommend wearing your best. Grab Fried Dough with Maple Cream or visit the Maple Barn to sample all of the delicious (and sometimes wild) things we put Maple Syrup on! Tomorrow is the last day, ending with a special bracelet night (for rides) and fireworks!
