Topsfield Fair featured in Boston Globe Magazine as one of the top ten great New England Fairs.
By Patricia Harris and David Lyon
Organizers of the Topsfield Fair have dubbed 2015 the Year of the Sunflower, but the All New England Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off always steals the show — especially since 2012, when the winner came in at more than a ton. Free entertainment highlights include Tony Orlando, aquatic canine acrobatics, and the timber skills of the Axe Women Loggers of Maine. Tickets to the monster truck shows cost extra. 207 Boston Street, Topsfield, 978-887-5000, topsfieldfair.org
