Punkintown Fair

One of the communities in the area had a fair this weekend. I’m not typically a fair kind of girl, but this small fair, was just my size and speed. Old wooden booths with lots of charm….

…old fashioned games….

…lights and… 
…bunting strung from one building to the next… 

Legend has it, that the original name of the town, Punkintown, was named after a sow and her litter. They were living inside one of the many large ‘punkins’ [aka pumpkins] that grew in the area. The name stuck and for the past seventy years, the town has been the home of the Punkintown Fair.
