152nd New Ipswich Children's Fair (The Preparation)

Another great fair! It's not only an annual event, it's a year LONG event which requires an army of volunteers to prepare for the next one.

Here are a few photos taken BEFORE the fair opens.

A new addition for the fair, Bill and Faith's New Hampshire Seal float

My corner of the world, the Garden Shop benches and stairs arrive. One lone Norfolk Pine arrived as a donation (which did sell)
