From Maine's most popular comedian and disco band, to the sheep dog trials and fireworks display, Hancock County's annual Labor Day weekend tradition has something for everyone!

Get ready to enjoy the livestock and the food as the Blue Hill Fair kicks off this Thursday, August 30th, at 4 p.m.  It's "Dollar Day" where admission is $1 and the mechanical rides are both just a buck!  Check it out as the Grand presents the finalists for their now annual "Hancock County's Got Talent" competition on the Grandstand Stage that night at 7.

Friday is Senior Citizen's Day, where everyone 65 and over pays only $3 to get in!

Saturday is Wild Blueberry Day, and will feature Wilbur's 5k Road Race stepping off at 8 a.m. and then very popular and amazing sheep dog trials at 12 noon!  The Cowboy Angels take the Grandstand Stage at 5:30 and then it's everybody's favorite Maine comedian, Bob Marley, at 7:30!

Sunday night will will be HUGE as everyone will be shaking their groove thing when Motor Booty Affair, a fabulous band featuring the sights and sounds of the disco area, takes the Grandstand Stage at 7:30!  That will be followed by the Mammoth Aerial Fireworks Display sometime around 9.

Labor Day features a "Wristband Special", where $20 will allow you to ride all the rides that you want between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.  And, you certainly won't want to miss the Demolition Derby State of Maine Championship at 4:30, a smashing good time!

Regular admission to the Blue Hill Fair on Friday is $8, and it's $10 on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  Kids under 12 get in free any day.  There's free parking.  All stage shows are free with admission, which is a very good deal! The Blue Hill Fairgrounds is located on Route 172.  A full schedule of events is HERE.

So, belly up to a doughboy and get ready to pat a cow because it's Blue Hill Fair time!
