The Franklin County Fair has scrapped plans for its September fair — a decision that follows cancellations by the Blandford Fair, held every year on Labor Day weekend, and fairs in Heath, Cummington, Hardwick and elsewhere.
Our small local businesses who annually donate significant funds to the fairgrounds are taking out loans just to stay afloat.
