2012 Four Town Fair - Somers, CT

Postby Peter Person » Wed Sep 19, 2012 4:46 pm

This past weekend was the 174th Annual Four Town Fair in Somers, CT.
Over the years we've entered different things in the fair and/or participated in the Parade.
This year was no different...(plus I have to brag about my kids anyway :{_}: )

Erik entered this Pencil Drawing:

Emily entered this Charcoal Sketch:

...and this Oil Painting:

Hannah entered these vegetables:

...one big sweet tater!

The Scantic Valley Antique Engine Club had a display of tractors and engines.

...and this unique tractor;

There was also a nicely done Massey-Harris Pony and several John Deere tractors.

Fun time had by all.

Great pics, nice art work.

I told the misses when all is said and done my last thing on my bucket list is to paint and take pics of the wilds in VT.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
