Lebanon, Conn. — A mix of new attractions and community mainstays will be featured in the 53rd annual Lebanon Country Fair.
The fair opens Friday and runs through Sunday. New features include monster truck rides, a cannoli vendor and barbecue, said Rand Wells, a former superintendent of the fair and the volunteer in charge of vendors and concessions.
“We try and protect our vendors and make sure there are not too many duplicates,” Wells said. “That’s not something other fairs do.”
The fair, organized by the Lions Club, is a major fundraiser for the club and other organizations in town. The Lions will distribute the profits from the fair to many town organizations. But many other town nonprofits have their own booths at the fair and raise money from the sales of food, drinks and other items.
“It’s our biggest fundraiser of the year,” Wells said. “And it is for many of our local organizations, as well.”
