Going on now through the weekend, the Springfield fair offers everything from carnival rides from Smokey's Greater Shows, to all the fair food your belly can handle. Toss in the thrilling excitement of the truck pulls and the fun of the Miss Springfield Fair Pageant, and you have your self a recipe for a weekend of fun.

From truck pulls, tractor pulls and everything in between, it's a great weekend to make plans to go 'up the fayah', as Maine's King of Comedy, Bob Marley would say. Sure it might be a little bit of a drive from the Central Maine area, but if you're anything like us, there is no amount of miles that would stand in the way between us and a dough boy!
