Kat Schumacher hangs prizes for the duck pond game booth at the Essex County Fair in Westport. “This is my first year on the road, and I love it,” the 22-year-old Long Island native said. “I had worked at a fair near home and had also tried retail but I have left that and never looked back.” The fair continues through Sunday at the fairgrounds in Westport.
