Dear Business Owner/Manager:

I wanted to send this letter to you to say”Thank You”once again for your support of the Houlton Fair Association over the past years and to let you know about our new and exciting events happening at this years fair. The fair this year will be from Friday July 1st thru Monday July 4th 2016

The Houlton Fair Association will be offering some new and exciting events in 2016. On opening day this year, Kid‘s Day (Friday July 1st 2016 ) we will be doing a 6 & 7 Year old Pig Scramble. Kid’s Day is one of our most popular days at the fair. 90% of the activities are geared towards Kids and Kids at heart. The ever popular Eel Racing contest is back as well as Josh Landry and his Chainsaw Carving. Once again this year we will have 3 Demolition Derby’s as well as an expanded Lawnmower Racing and a Tough Truck Competition. Plus old but new this year we will have the Ribfest BBQ contest, Chili Contest, Crockpot Challenge and everybody’s favorite Spam Cooking Contest. Plus you can’t forget all the 4H contests, kids games and the biggest fireworks show North of Portland. Sunday July 3rd is Prize Giveaway Sunday and this year we’re giving away a Convertible. That’s right….pay your admission and win a Free Car, as well as Concert Tickets, Redsox Tickets and much much more. Lots of activities and events for all ages at the 2016 Houlton Agricultural Fair. All this for $12.00 per person which includes all the rides and all fair activities. Due to things beyond our control we had to raise our gate price for the first time in 8 years. With doing this we are offering 2 senior citizen days(55 & Over) as well as a Free Admission and Free Rides time. Without your help year after year we wouldn’t be able to provide  TOP QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT  at an affordable price. With the economy the way it is imagine for $12.00, a person can come to our fair and enjoy carnival rides from Smokeys Greater Shows and take in Top Quality Entertainment. The Houlton area has become the place to go during the July 4th Holiday Weekend, and without your help, none of this would be possible.

Please look over the enclosed information and if you have any questions or would like to discuss please feel free to contact me at anytime by phone(207-694-0236) or by email(This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). In order to get you in our 7,500 schedules that were printing to help promote your sponsorship, I need to have a reply back by May 27th 2016.
