After four full days of food, games, rides, prizes, and more, the 153rd Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society Fair ended on Sunday. One of the highlight events of the summer, the Fair at the Ag Hall in West Tisbury includes two barns of animals, vendors and demonstrations in addition to traditional carnival rides and games. Floaters won the award for Best Food Booth this year, and African Arts took the blue ribbon for Best Non-Food booth. The 2015 Fair will be held August 20, 21, 22, and 23.
