The A in A-Day stands for activities, though I grew up thinking it meant agriculture. I thought this because A-Day is held at Delaware Valley College, which is an agricultural college in Doylestown Pennsylvania. The fair has bouncy rides, pony rides, face painting and games for the kids and there are rows and rows of craft vendors for the adults. And of course there is food. Lots of food!
In addition to all that, the main purpose is for the students of DelVal to showcase various agricultural displays and exhibits. There are equestrian shows, sheep sheering and milking demonstrations, livestock competitions, a tracker parade, and of course the aformentioned pig races (oh yes!). We had a lovely day on a gorgeous Sunday, accompanied by our good friends and their kids.
