Year of the Sunflower
Did you know that sunflowers can grow to be over 10 feet tall? In fact, the Guinness Book of World Records reports that the tallest sunflower in history was a whopping 30 feet tall! Although they don't all grow large enough to break records, Sunflowers are much more than a pretty flower you see in someone's garden. To celebrate the 2015 Fair theme, "Year of the Sunflower" we have planned lots of fun festivities!

Through partnerships with local schools and libraries, the Topsfield Fair Education Department plans to distribute over 3,000 "Year of the Sunflower" kits. Kits will include everything needed to start a Sunflower Garden (peat pellets, pots, and seeds) and the materials for a unique Sunflower Craft! Special "Year of the Sunflower" stickers and activity books are also being made available. This initiative's hope is to promote children getting seeds in their hands, learning how to plant those seeds, grow those seeds, and then enter them into the Fair!
