The Houlton Fair runs from Saturday until July 4. It includes livestock shows and a demolition derby. It takes place at Community Park in Houlton, about three miles from the border with Canada.
Maine agricultural fairs draw tens of thousands of visitors over the course of the season. They're promoted heavily by the state Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry.
