102nd annual Heath Fair returns this weekend

Franklin County

HEATH, Mass. (WWLP) – Fireworks, live music and square dancing in Franklin County!

The Heath Fair kicked off its 102nd annual event in town Friday night. 22News was there as the finishing touches were being made at the Heath Fairgrounds before gates opened at 5 p.m.

22News spoke with the president of the Heath Fair, who said Friday is always a popular night for many families.

“We like to start with what our traditions are..because that’s what keeps people coming back,” said Jessica O’Neill, president. “Because they know when they come their going to see the Heath Fair they have come to love over the years. We try to keep it much like it did used to be, but we like to bring in some new things too.”

Those traditions include a ham and bean supper and tractor pull. But new to the fair this year is a Hilltown Sled Dog mushing demonstration.

But if you weren’t able to make it Friday night, you still have Saturday and Sunday. Parking on the fairgrounds is now free and will take place rain or shine.

Below are the hours:

Friday – 5:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m

Saturday – 8:00 a.m – 10:00 p.m.

Sunday – 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
