The Hartford Independent Fair

The Hartford Independent Fair has been dubbed the "The Biggest Little Fair in the World". It's not technically a county fair since it's not sponsored by the county or any government body, but to everybody in the county and beyond, it's a pretty big deal. Big enough that the fair has become a noun. Simple called 'Fair', which kinda confused me at first. When talking to people, they weren't getting ready for THE fair, they were simple getting ready for FAIR. Not THE fair, just FAIR. Get it? Me neither.

Anyway, I've been away from blogging for a bit because I basically lived at, *ahem*, Fair. Three days of feature hunting and then covering the main grandstand event each of the three nights. I'm putting up a couple of my favorites from the three days here, but go ahead and check out the full galleries -
