Three days of bad weather during this past Summer's Bolton Fair has put organizers in debt and next year's fair in jeopardy. Bolton Fair President Rose Darden said in a press statement, "We may be forced to sell the fairgrounds which will mean an end to a 130 year old tradition. We really need the communities’ help." You can check out the story here. Tomorrow, you'll be able to keep a Massachusetts tradition alive and support The Bolton Fair by going to the Rock And Blues BBQ Festival at The Lancaster Fairgrounds with live music from some of the areas finest bands and delicious BBQ from Firefly's. It's rain or shine, BYOB, you can bring blankets, lawn chairs, and coolers to make yourself comfortable. You can get more info, band schedule, and purchase tickets or donate here.
The Bolton Fair started out in 1874 and has evolved into a showcase for local agriculture community. If this tradition stops, part of that area's identity will disappear and The Fairgrounds will have to be sold. Please try to stop by the festival or donate here.
