Back in June 1986, this newspaper reported that the annual Pucker Street Fair had been a bit wet “but the show went on.”

ALTAMONT — Do you enjoy making pirate sounds?  Do you say “Arrrrr,”  a lot?

If you do, matey, join the crowd at this year’s Altamont Fair where the Pirates of the Colombian Caribbean Aerial High Wire Thrill Show will give you plenty of chances to show off your pirate chops.

Serge Coronas Jr. and his family have been a part of the big top for five generations. He talked about his life and Circus Hollywood while visiting the Altamont Fair this week.

The day of July 30, the Old Men of the Mountain met at the Blue Star Café in Schoharie. It might be the weather, but many of the OFs are getting up earlier, and earlier.

Though the Altamont Fair has long been a place to showcase agricultural achievements, more and more it’s also where people share their intimate connections to the living world with others.
