Some people invest in the stock market. Others try to climb the Money Pole in the fair’s Essex County Farmyard.

The $10 you win for reaching the top may not help with the mortgage, but there is real satisfaction in making it to the top.
There is no age limit for the contest, which will be held Friday at 4 and 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
The Topsfield Fair opens Friday, Oct. 4.
