Havelock Fair 2009
Visiting a country fair gives you the chance to inspect the business-end of a cow
Havelock fair isn't Quebec's largest fair, but it's one of the most charming. And it had some giant pumpkins and interesting quilts. We are fascinated with quilts. It is in a beautiful setting, and a drive up or down the road lets you visit plenty of apple orchards for apples, u-pik fun, and delicious baked and preserved products.
September is the month when we visit some of Quebec's regional fairs and festivals.
