Two new additions to this year’s Harford Fair Baby Show was a new judge, Serena Cranage who joined long time judges Ada Hess and Dick Craige. These three brave people arrive early on Wednesday morning of the Fair and are there until after noon for the judging of age groups that begins with any multiples (twins, triplets) moves on with two and a half to three year olds and works down to the much younger age groups with new borns to three month olds.
The other new addition is Announcer Jason Miller who is the new voice of the Harford Fair. It would be remiss if the three people who keep the age groups in proper order and are on hand to answer questions were not acknowledged. They are Eileen Craige, Peggy Maynard and Anita Millard who are carrying on the Tyler tradition of working this event. This year there were 84 boys and 143 girls to be judged.
Sponsored by Peoples National Bank, their employees are also a presence handing out gifts to the babies as they register for their age group.
