The 43rd annual Riverhead Country Fair: Photos

Despite overcast skies, the 43rd annual Riverhead Country Fair drew thousands of people to the downtown area on an unseasonably warm October Sunday.

The celebration of Riverhead’s agricultural heritage is one of the largest festivals in New York State, featuring displays and competitions, live music, pony rides, vendors and family-friendly entertainment.
