Paul Jackson's display of fruit and vegetables won best in show at the annual Agricultural Fair last weekend.

August’s headline evenings – Illumination Night, the Agricultural Fair, and the Oak Bluffs Fireworks – all took place last week in to the weekend. Though it was drizzly for Illumination Night, the Fireworks seemed to make up for it with a grand finale fit for the President. The 149th Fair had a great four-day run with pig races, skillet throwing, great food, and rides.
