Tunbridge World's Fair - 02|

I am reasonably certain that this is the location of the image. I had made a note on the back of my print that read, "Funbridge Fair Parking Lot", which was probably the exact note from the negative sleeve. So Googling it brought me to the WikipediA - Tunbridge World's Fair page.
The Tunbridge World's Fair began in 1867 and has been held yearly for 145 years.
The first eight fairs were held in North Tunbridge, Vermont.
The Tunbridge World's Fair is an annual event held in mid-September in Tunbridge, Vermont.
The annual fair continues to this day with demonstrations of farming and agricultural traditions and culture, working antique displays, horse and ox pulling, horse racing, cattle and horse shows, junior exhibits, floral and 4-H exhibits, contra dancing, gymkhana (a gymkhana is an equestrian competition held to display the training and talents of horses and their riders, particularly in speed events.), and many free shows.
As with the previous image of this Fair, there are many different types of wagons visible here, and I don't know the names of the different types, sorry.
Here are a couple of links to lists of "carriage" types:

Along the treeline at the back of the field, there is a row of stables. About 20' in front of these structures, there is a line of cattle being led towards the left. There might be some oxen in this line as well. It's hard to see, due to the dust from them walking, and the focus of the camera.
Towards the upper-left of the image, there are 3 men standing in the field. Directly behind them, maybe 30' away, there is a man wearing dark vest and pants and a white shirt. He's holding the hand of a young girl who is wearing a white dress.
