The first Saturday in February has come around again, and with it the annual Martinborough Country Fair. There’s always a follow-up on the first Saturday of March too. This year’s fair was again huge and well attended. It’s essentially a girls’ day out, though men tag along. One man from Wellington was quoted in the paper saying it was an annual visit and the fair was a small price to pay for being allowed to spend the rest of the weekend fishing.
Here are a few images of fair action, taken on my backup Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS85. It’s a nice little camera that only cost $240. Next time I replace my #1 camera, I’ll consider switching from Canon to Panasonic. Perhaps with an 8x zoom.

A small group of musicians – I suppose you could call them a jazz band – which moved around the town square playing excellent music:

Looks great. I missed the fair this time, but will be there in March. Love the video of that little band. Nice music very appropriate for a country fair.
