VIDEO: Unity Comes Together for the 2016 Common Ground Country Fair
Up next in Alexander Bertoni's "Why ME" series is a pretty cool video from this year's Common Ground Country Fair in Unity.
According to the flyers, every year, the city of Portland moves to the tiny farming town of Unity, Maine. That's a bit of an exaggeration, but it's not far from the truth. The town of Unity has just south of 3,000 full-time residents. Each year, the Common Ground Fair attracts about that same number to the town... in volunteers.
In total, more than 60,000 farmers, hippies, yuppies, environmentalists, foodies, and agriculture enthusiasts flock to the town to taste, see, hear, and experience the overwhelming art, livestock, cuisine, and music that MOFGA brings together."
