Topsfield Fair

Topsfield Fair is one of the longest running annual fairs in the United States

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.

'As You Like It' at Maudslay State Park

Theater in the Open present 'As You Like It' Maudslay State Park in Newburyport

Shakespeare invites his audience into the Forest of Arden, where the beneficent and chaotic forces of Nature will melt away the synthetic bonds of the city and restore us to our proper selves…perhaps.  One of Shakespeare’s most simple, flirtatious and playful comedies, As You Like It takes us away from the preening theater of the court to explore the primal theater of Nature; here is a play that belongs outside. Join us for a journey into the woods as we overlay the Forest of Arden on Maudslay State Park for Shakespeare’s As You Like It.

When: 
Saturdays and Sundays, August 9-31, 2014 4pm
