On a beautiful early June day, I took my family to Hampton Beach State Park and the first annual Olde Tyme Fair! Fiesta Shows created a Midway adjacent to the RV campground. Parking was only $5 per car, granting access to the magnificent beach. Beyond the Midway rides, games, and food trucks, there was a community presence with booths from different organizations. The Blue Ocean Society offered children free art activities to raise awareness for ocean conservation. There was also an art booth showcasing local artists. I had the pleasure of meeting Senator Nancy Stiles at a booth celebrating the Hampton Beach Village District. Throughout the weekend, local bands entertained the fair as well as beach-goers. One particular goal of mine during this trip was to finally try some Lobster Mac & Cheese, which I succeeded and savored in my beach chair nearby with my toes in the sand and the waves adding to the band tunes. Although my family greatly enjoyed the fair, stepping a few feet away we were able to experience why Hampton Beach is one of the most popular beaches in New England.
