CUMBERLAND, Maine (AP) — Summer is officially over and Maine’s agriculture fair season is drawing to a finale.

The Cumberland Fair begins Sunday, a day after the Farmington Fair wrapped up. The Cumberland Fair will run through next weekend with a rodeo, tractor pull, pig scramble, woodsman’s show and other events.

After that, the seasons ends with the largest agriculture fair of them all — the Fryeburg Fair. It begins Oct. 2 and continues through Oct. 10.

The Common Ground Fair was supposed to be held over the weekend, but it became a virtual event because of the pandemic.
