365 Project - 197 - "City Fair Nights"



July 16, 2010 - "City Fair Nights"

Final day of the Danbury City Fair.

Just a slim shadow of the Great Danbury Fair that was held here for over 100 years...

... until Mr. Leahy died...

... and the land was sold, against his wishes...

... and the dozers came...

... and in an instant the Fair was gone... and the Mall arrived...

... so we could have a carnival in the mall's parking lot...

... and call it the Danbury City Fair.

Some things just can't be replaced!
