The Topsfield Fair is a perennial favorite for us. We're not the biggest fans of the midway, although it is always worth a walkthrough and a ride or two. We love fruits and vegetables, and are always on the lookout for the winning 'biggest pumpkin'. Another favorite is checking out the pigs and other farm animals, as well as the interesting variety of guinea pigs and rabbits.
Living on the coast is a constant reminder of the beauty and power of the Atlantic Ocean. Isn't it interesting that our mighty seas are also fragile and need protection? Come to Joppa Flats for a full day of indoor activities and exhibits that focus on our ocean giants, such as whales, sharks, and sea turtles. Find out where our seafood comes from, examine sand and sea shells from around the world, and participate in art activities and ocean-themed games. Learn how we can all take responsibility for sustaining the natural beauty and resources of our oceans and coastline.
