    PRESQUE ISLE — With spring comes turning the clocks forward, green grass, Easter and the Agri-Business Trade Fair.
    “[Attending the show] is like the rite of passage … everybody looks to the Agri-Business Trade Fair as the beginning of spring,” said Michael Bosse, executive director of the Fort Fairfield Chamber of Commerce, which hosts the event. “When you hear it being advertised and you know that it’s going on, you know that summer is right around the corner. After 31 years, it’s a tradition.”
    The annual Agri-Business Trade Fair will be held March 25-27 at The Forum in Presque Isle.
    “We’re expecting upwards of 50 exhibitors this year,” said Bosse. “We have everything from recreational-type equipment to farm-related equipment, agricultural-related services like the USDA, Farm Service Agency and Maine Farm Bureau, and a community market which will feature items ranging from crafts to food.
    The Agri-Business Trade Fair will be held from 4-8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday, and noon-4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $3 for adults and $1 for children under 12.
