The opening night of the Topsfield Fair, inspired this fun-filled exhibit complete with rides, food, music and the unique smells that can only be found midway on the Midway (scratch and sniff here)! Get your all-attraction wristband good for Raymond Scott, The Shazam, Terry Boylan, Glenda Collins, Infulence, Richard Thompson, Bonnie Raitt, The Futureheads, The Olivia Tremor Control, Stone Circus, Christian Kolonovits, The Band, Ben Folds Five, Bee Bop Deluxe and Todd Rundgren!
As an added bonus, we jump into the RFW Time Machine and set the controls for 8 PM September 3, 1964 when The Beatles were the featured performers on the stage of the Fairgrounds Coliseum at The Indiana State Fair held in the Indianapolis State Fairgrounds!
The performance was broadcast live on WIFE AM (thanks to all) and was also used as part of the soundtrack to "Our Fair Beatles" that was filmed, produced and aired by local television station WISH.
T8113 is a 100mb 160k mp3 1:27:44 in length made loud to be played fairly louder!

RFW approved and highly recommended!
The goal of the fledgling Society, formed by a group of "practical farmers" who first met on February 16, 1818, was "to promote and improve the agricultural interests of farmers and others in Essex County."
Now, nearly 200 years later, the Society still strives to do this, "to encourage, promote and preserve Essex County agricultural activities and to educate the general public regarding their importance in an atmosphere of fun and excitement through the medium of the Topsfield Fair."
What began as the Essex Agricultural Society Cattle Show with its annual exhibits/fairs held in various sites around Essex County to showcase agriculture, Topsfield Fair has been held annually at its existing location since 1910!
