WINDSOR, Maine (AP) - A popular fair in a small central Maine town is wrapping up after more than a week of events.

The Windsor Fair comes to an end on Monday. The fair, which is in its 125th year, kicked off last Sunday.

The Windsor Fair has been around since 1888 and draws more than 100,000 people each year.

The final day's festivities are scheduled to include horse barrel racing, horse pulling and an antique car show and parade.

The fair also featured demolition derbies, music, and a giant pumpkin contest. This year's winning pumpkin weighed in at 962 pounds, but didn't come close to the state record of 1,471-pound pumpkin in 2010.
