Did you forget this was coming? Because the North Country Fair is upon us Saturday, Sept. 20 and Sunday, Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (free).

Just like the previous 40 revels, the place will be stacked with vendors — art, crafts and food stalls to get lost (and stuffed) among. On Saturday at 1 p.m., the rhythms of Rio make their way around the plaza courtesy of the always sunny and spangly Samba da Alegria. And on Sunday at 1 p.m., the All Species Parade takes its laps (all species but dogs, that is — leave Fido at home). As for other entertainments — they are legion. Check out the three stages of all-weekend fun.
