Stratham%20Fair%202005_38_jpg.jpg My family's affinity for New England fairs have always been for the trips we take in the fall, yet I have always heard countless accounts of the summer time favorite, the Stratham Fair, in Stratham, N.H., on July 24-27.

So yes, it is a typical fair, with tractor pulls, a wave by some beauty pageant contestant, sheep shearing and funnel cakes. As fairs go, you know that is just the tip of the iceberg for delicacies and ringed events. The Stratham Fair has nothing less than the more long-running fairs in the region, yet brings about its unique identity with things like a pie eating contest, ballet, and a lobster lunch.

Daily admissions for 6-12 and 65 and older are $7 and under 6 years of age are free. An adventurous 4-Day Pass is $20 for an adult and $12 for ages 6-12 and 65 and older. There are all kinds of other pricing strategies that you can check out online. Free parking is always a pull to get there as well.
