MIDDLEBURY — Anais Mitchell, Moira Smiley and Abigail Nessen Bengson are all versatile, up-and-coming musical artists who regularly perform in venues across the country.

They also have something else in common.

Livestock and politicians are big part of the scene

Editor’s note: Addison County Fair and Field Days provides a calliope of sights and sounds that tantalize the senses and tickle the imagination, and the 62nd annual edition last week was no exception. As always, the five-day event proved too much to capture in one place, but we’re presenting a few verbal snapshots from the fairgrounds along with some of Trent Campbell’s fantastic photographs so you can relive the experiences and hopefully make plans to attend next year.

ADDISON COUNTY — The 40-some members of the Maiden Vermont women’s chorus have an important performance coming up this Saturday, and the choice of attire is an important consideration.

“It could take us a year to decide what color hat to wear,” chorus director Lindi Bortney said late last week. “Someone said we should wear the red hats, and then someone else said half of us should wear red and half should wear blue.”

FERRISBURGH — At Button Bay State Park on Monday evening, a dozen small children ran around in swimsuits and bare feet, unfazed by the steady rain.

Andrea Viera of Lincoln smiled and looked across the crowd to Elias Stedman, a seven-year-old from Brooklyn, N.Y., who is finishing up a two-week stay in Vermont sponsored by the Fresh Air Fund. For two days after he arrived, she said, Elias kept his shoes on, but after watching Viera’s three children, Kayla, Jake and Nate, walk around shoeless, he decided to try it as well.

“Now he’s barefoot all the time,” she said.

NEW HAVEN — When Chris Hogan was a young boy, he showed animals in various 4-H competitions at the Addison County Fair and Field Days. Hogan, now 18, enjoyed the competitions, but they weren’t the real reason he was excited for Field Days every year.

During his downtime between 4-H competitions, the Leicester boy would hurry across the fairgrounds to the antique equipment area to watch as volunteers repaired old machines and conducted demonstrations.
