  • Kayla Laplume, 4, trailed her mother, Lexi Hubbard, on Wednesday, August 28, 2013, as Hubbard worked on setting up various booths for the Hopkinton State Fair. She is the fourth-generation of her family to be involved around fairs. Her great-grandfather, her grandmother, her uncle, and her father all worked fairs in the Northeast and the Hopkinton State Fair over the years, and most still do. "We're a carnie family," Hubbard said, who, like her daughter, grew up around fairs from about the same age. Next year Hubbard said she is planning to take a break from the fairs while Kayla starts school.<br/><br/>The Hopkinton State Fair began on Thursday and will run through Monday, September 2, 2013. General admission ranges from $5-$6 for kids and up to $8-10 for adults with discounted prices for senior citizens above 60 years-old.<br/><br/>(JOHN TULLY / Monitor Staff)
