North Stonington Fair turns 50

Day File Photo

Happy anniversary: The North Stonington Agricultural Fair marks its 50th year with this weekend's festivities.

Gone country: Nashville singer-songwriter Austin Webb - whose singles include "It's All Good," "Slip On By" and "Raise 'Em Up" - headlines at 8 p.m. Saturday.

Fresh to the fair: New elements include the women's hay bale toss at 9 p.m. Friday.

Pretty fun: Pageants are traditions at fairs, and this year's Fair Queen Contest happens at 7 tonight, with the Princess and Junior Princess pageants at 7 p.m. Friday.

Of man and beast: You've got your 4-wheel drive truck and SUV pull at 5 p.m. Saturday and your anitque tractor pull at noon Sunday. You prefer your fair events old-school? See the working farm draft horse show at 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

Quirky works: Step right up! Step right up! Contests range from pie eating to nail driving.
