丹伯里(Danbury)农场及社区博览会
地方性遗产

您在一餐饭的时间内可以吃下多少份派?于丹伯里市的炽星农场71(The Blazing Star Grange Number 71)所举办的吃派比赛是社区博览会的一部分,这个博览会自1914年起每年举办一次。

您知道Grange是什么吗?这是个以家庭为导向的社会组织,它将重心放在农业及郊区生活,而且是农夫们于19世纪时所创立的。Grange这个字源自于「谷粒」(grain)。全国各地都有Grange,一直到了今天,Grange仍与社区服务计划有关,如:为慈善事业募款及增进大众对当地议题的了解。炽星农场的社区博览会也包括了现场音乐秀、拍卖、游行及很多很多的派。

不是住在丹伯里的所有人都对社区博览会游行感兴趣有一年的游行行列中有两只名为艾克(Ike)及麦克(Mike)的大公牛,不久,它们决定它们已经受够了,所以它们直接离开街道并打道回府艾克及麦克不想成为游行的一部分,它们只想要待在它们的谷仓及干草旁边!


How much pie can you eat in a single sitting? The Blazing Star Grange Number 71 in Danbury, New Hampshire, has a pie-eating contest as part of its community fair, which has been held annually since 1914.

Do you know what a Grange is? It is a family-oriented, social organization that focuses on agriculture and rural life and was founded by farmers in the 19th century. The word comes from "grain." There are local granges all over the country. Today, granges are involved in community service projects such as raising money for charities and increasing public awareness of local issues. The Blazing Star Grange community fair also includes live music, auctions, a parade -- and a lot of pies.

Not everyone in Danbury gets excited about the community fair parade. One year, two huge oxen, Ike and Mike, were a part of the parade. After a while, they decided they had had enough, so they simply turned off the street and went straight home. Ike and Mike didn't want any part of the parade -- they just wanted their barn and their hay!
