STRATHAM — Fair season gets underway in July, and the season-opener honors go to Stratham on Thurs., July 18 from 3:00-8:00 p.m. at Stratham Hill Park, Route 33 in Stratham.

For the classic fair experience, grab some fried food, stroll the fairway, and settle in for a concert or tractor pull, but don’t overlook the 4-H festivities. Dog shows are shows that are great for little animal lovers, rowdy swine shows are perfect for rambunctious boys, and the buildings housing “nonwalking” projects, such as photography and sewing, are tailor-made for moms and dads who need a break from funnel cake fumes and July sun.

Hours are: Thurs., 3:00-10:00 p.m., Fri.-Sun., 10:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
