Smash 'em up fun in Union Fair demolition derby
Second night of derby action slated for Aug. 24

UNION — As far as the 148th annual Union Fair and 58th Maine Wild Blueberry Festival is concerned, the demolition derby is so nice, they do it twice — as they have for many years.

This year was no different as nearly 50 drivers brought their clunkers, jalopies and beaters out to the first derby of the fair week on Saturday night, Aug. 19, with winners crowned throughout the night.

Another crash course in hazardous driving at Union Fair
Maine Blueberry Festival hosts more smashing, nighttime fun

UNION — The second running of the demolition derby at the 148th annual Union Fair and 58th Maine Wild Blueberry Festival did not disappoint on Thursday, Aug. 24 as the stands — as well as the flatbeds of many trucks surrounding the arena — were jam-packed with smashing fans.

The number of cars were significantly smaller than Saturday night’s event, as 27 cars battled throughout the night in a handful of heats and features.
