CUMBERLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Pig races, classic cars, an 11 hundred pound pumpkin, and bucking bulls make for an eventful 142nd annual Cumberland Fair this week.
Organizers hope the fair, which goes until Sunday, will bring in at least 50 thousand people.
It's the biggest fundraiser for the Cumberland Farmer's Club, which uses the money for agricultural education and supports 4-H.
One of the big draws this year is a rodeo show by Rawhide Rodeo Company out of New York.
The company is putting on a children's rodeo Thursday at 4 p.m. and professional bullriding performances Friday and Saturday evening.
"The biggest thing is entertainment," said Sam Swearingen, owner of Rawhide Rodeo.
"It's good to see what the animals can do and how they work and if it wasn't for us some of these animals wouldn't be here."
