September is not only back-to-school month, it's also town-fair month — a fun-filled time with crafts, freshly harvested fruits and vegetables, rides, music, and games. It's such a blast to catch up with neighbors, make new friends and watch the kids as they run from one attraction to another — New England at it's best! So embrace the chill in the air, grab your pumpkin latte and enjoy.
