10E3287: Peru Fair 2014

Tomorrow, Saturday Sept 27th, the annual Peru Fair will crank up again in the little town of Peru near Bromley Mountain in Vermont. This craft fair has returned to its former glory. There is a full-on pig roast and plenty of other food vendors around, hay and pony rides, music, demos and clogging. What else do you need? $6 donation to the Town of Peru Scholarship Fund. Kids under 6 free. No dogs. Opening parade starts at 9:45.

The leaves are turning and it can be chilly by the end of September in southern Vermont - but the fair seems to always be blessed with warm weather - unless it pours. Rain or shine folks! 

Gettup; 10e duck canvas cap, Topo gingham shirt, double front pants, Danner Tramline boots, Norcross bandana. You will be a hero if you bring some Tabasco to the picnic table.

(Pro-tip: unwritten rule that if you hike Bromley you can ride the slide back down gratis. Have your pal drop you off at the Long Trail trailhead a mile down past the mountain and hike up). Our friends in town have revived the JJHapgood General Store - check them out - there will be a beer tent andmusic once the fair ends. After the pig roast grab a quail kabob and some gingery Switchel. This great local potter Janno Gay doesn't do the Fair so much but fantastic list of other vendors here.

"The Pig Roast starts at 11am, run once again by the Peru Volunteer Fire Department: The Pig Roast includes: pork, BBQ sauce, apple sauce, cole slaw, beans, and a roll. Roast corn is $2 extra."  12 till its gone!
 Our sleepy little town turns to this... see ya there!
