NEW HAVEN — As the sun set Tuesday night, the first day of the Addison County Fair and Field Days came to a triumphant close with the annual opening parade, a tradition as old as the fair itself.
The parade featured more than 25 groups, each eager to share their favorite thing about Field Days, the theme for the 2016 parade.
“My favorite thing about Field Days is all of it.” said Rustan Swenson, drum major for the Seth Warner Mt. Independence Fife and Drum Corps. “I’m serious, everything, I love it all.”
