If you and the family hit up the Bridgewater Fair, you know there's nothing like a good old-fashioned Connecticut country fair. You'll be treated to rides and games, livestock, pig races, live entertainment, fried dough, cotton candy, burgers and dogs, and making out at the top of the Ferris Wheel! (my wife's idea)

These five Connecticut Fairs are located in the towns of Harwinton, Orange, Bethlehem, Wolcott, and Durham, and all are definitely worth the drive!
