Fun begins in Goshen as 105th annual fair gets going
The 105th annual Goshen Fair got underway at the Goshen Fairgrounds on Saturday. There was a chill in the air when the gates opened at 8 a.m. but the crowd pouring through the gates warmed up as the sun came out and made for an ideal opening day of one of New England's classic agricultural fairs.
