Alpacas are Adorable: Truro Agricultural Fair 2011

The 3rd annual Truro Agricultural Fair drew a huge crowd last weekend on the Outer Cape. From pie-eating contests and three-legged races, to the Barnyard Beauty Contest (you vote with locally grown beans) and the fiddlers on the bandstand, to the abundance of ripe tomatoes and an early crop of pumpkins, this country-like gathering was a rocking scene for this otherwise quiet beach town.

The alpacas were so cute. Super soft too. They look like a cross between a poodle and a camel, but somehow much more appealing.


Who knew there were so many roosters and hens in Truro? The fowl far outnumbered the other animals in the Barnyard Beauty Contest.

There were only a few bunnies this year. These guys are cuddly. The goose is a bit bedraggled.

The kids’ pie eating contest. Girls took 1st and 2nd place.

See you next year!
