Don’t miss the Fall Fair Sunday

  • Aug. 2, 2013 1:00 p.m.

by Sarah Peerless–The 31st annual Tlell Fall Fair will be up and running Sunday, and “it’s going to be different,” according to organizer Linda Louis. Starting at 10:00 am, the fair will have events and booths ranging from ice cream and burgers to the Honey Lady of Tlell with live bees. As well, there will be alpacas and pigs on display, and the famous touch tank. About forty booths will be open. This year’s theme is What’s In Your Garden?, and “it looks good,” said Ms Louis. She adds that the money raised from the fair will go towards doors for the shelter and permanent booths. Ms Louis is hoping for a wide range of produce to be entered, as it’s a good growing season for gardens so far. “Mine are going nuts,” she jokes. Confirmed bands that will play are Out Of The Blue, Air Kanada, and Roly Thompson, all local, as well as The Kerplunks from off-island. As usual, anyone can enter produce, baking, or artwork to win ribbons. Catalogues can be found at Home Hardware in Masset, Bayview Market in Port, Ranch Feeds in Tlell, and Isabel Creek Store in Charlotte.? For more information or to volunteer, call Ms Louis at 559-8975. See you at the fair!
