Demo Drivers Slip and Slide to Victory

August 23, 2011

BARTON – Heavy rain on Sunday failed to dampen the fun of the last day of the Orleans County Fair.
In fact, the rain seemed to add to the excitement of the demolition derby as drivers smashed cars while trying to maneuver a muddy, slippery track.
The excitement was heightened by lightning, thunder and a hard rain, but overcast skies only eased weekend’s grilling heat.
In between events, a few individuals rolled around in the mud for cash prizes while hungry fans chowed down on treats sold by area Boy Scouts or purchased from the assortment of vendors at the fair.
