We enjoyed last night’s special Blue Hill Fair. This Fair will continue today and tonight in celebration of April 1, with all rides free. April 1 has been celebrated for centuries all over the world.
For example, in England on April 1, 1698, it was advertised that lions would be washed at the base of the London Tower. Many people came to watch that dangerous activity. When they arrived, they not only saw no lions, they were laughed at and called “April Fools.”
If you don’t want to be laughed at, stay away from the Fair grounds. Nothing will be happening there today or tonight. But, have a nice April Fools’ Day otherwise. (Brooklin, Maine)
