A Pretty Fair Night

The first night of the Yankee Doodle Fair — on Thursday — was great.

Kids swarmed the annual event at the Westport Woman’s Club grounds, on Imperial Avenue. It’s a harbinger of summer. It’s old-fashioned. It’s fun.

But last night was off the charts. Perfect weather, the end of school (next week doesn’t really count), and the start of the weekend helped attract record crowds.

Here are a few scenes from the 2022 Yankee Doodle Fair.

Though really, this iconic Westport event is timeless.

For $1 a ticket, take a chance on whichever you prize you want. They range from Neil Diamond 50th anniversary concert gear and an authentic Louisiana alligator head, to tool kits, handbags and gift certificates galore.

The Yankee Doodle Fair continues at 44 Imperial Avenue today (Saturday, now through 10 p.m.) and tomorrow (Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.).
