Hopkinton Fair Celebrates Its 102th Year

Sep 1, 2017

The Hopkinton State Fair kicked off Friday - its 102nd year.

Events include horse pulling, dog water jumping and of course carnival rides and fried dough. 

Joan McNaught of Bedford Massachusetts has been coming for nearly 20 years.

“Would never miss it – wouldn’t miss it – love it. It’s my favorite fair. It’s just small enough to be family oriented. Small enough to – hey, the elderly can get around," McNaught said.

The four-day fair ends on Monday.
