It is not very often that you can combine livestock, amusement rides, carnival games, fired food, and poetry, but up here in the capital region we try to fit poetry into everything that is going on. For the 26th year, local poets will be representing the art of spoken word with special readings throughout the afternoon. The long running tradtion of poetry at the fair continues this afternoon at the Altamont Fairgrounds beginning at 2:00PM.
