The “ten best days of summer” in Vermont kicked off last weekend at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction. This year’s fair marks the debut of Strates Shows, a carnival company out of Florida. Also new to the fair this year is a bacon stand featuring chocolate-covered bacon, bacon on a stick and other bacon-centric creations. The fair runs through Sept. 6, 10 a.m. to midnight, daily. Labor Day weekend features lots of music, including the Happy Together Tour and Little Big Town. For more information, visit
