The summer of 2024 is going to be a blast!

Who wants a doughboy? After the harsh reality of this winter is long gone, we will have so many things to look forward to once again. And it just wouldn't be summer and fall in the State of Maine without the fair!

Hard not to dream of hot summer days and nights, especially when we are smack dab in the throws of January, with some interesting weather headed our way in the coming days.

The folks at Maine Fairs have released the scheduled dates for the 2024 State Fair season, including the iconic Bangor State Fair, which cranks things up from July 25th-August 3rd.

The thought of going on rides, listening to live music, playing games, and enjoying French fries with vinegar on a hot summer day, is too good to pass up
