NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) — The 2021 Three County Fair has been highly anticipated after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the fair’s organizers to cancel the majority of events and activities.
22News joined Aaron Lastowski into the Deano’s trailer, where they deep fry Reese’s Cups.
“This is what it is. It’s people and families and having a good time and putting smiles on kids’ faces it’s just you know what we do,” Lastowski said.
A chance at competitions with water guns and prizes, but if that doesn’t do it for you there’s always the rides.
Ziva Boria and Mackenzi Barnett explained some of the rides to 22News, “It was something that was going in circles and circles and then it goes backwards fast!”
From rides that make your head spin to rides that take you to new heights, people are glad to be having a good time.
“It’s really nice to be out at a fair because I haven’t been out in a really long time,” said Addy Sullivan of Easthampton.
“We did a lot of getting together with people on zoom and it’s not the same you know. Phone calls. You can’t visit with family. Well those doors are opening up again,” said Bob Bergstrom of Belchertown. “Just getting out with the people you know and lots of people you don’t, it’s all about, well society!”
The fair will go through the holiday weekend, opening at 10 a.m. on both Sunday and Monday.
