Yesterday (September 16th) was supposed to be the second day of the Farmington Fair.  Out of respect for those involved in the tragedy, the fair closed for the day.

According to WGME, Cushing Amusements, the company providing the fair's midway, stepped up to help first responders.

After finding out about the explosion, owner Larry Cushing approached the fair operators to find out how he could help.  Cushing provided the first responders, and their families, with meals and snacks.
