YE TO THE FAIR!
the 43rd annual Pine Walk Fair, scheduled for Saturday, July 4th (rain
date Sunday, July 5th). The
fair snakes all over our “downtown area” – from the east side of the firehouse,
then along the Bay and all the way down the dock.
This event is our large annual fundraiser and it enables us to pay
for both normal and emergency purposes. The actual fair, plus
its partner - Fair Harbor’s Amazing Online Auction, raises most of the money
for assorted community needs – e.g. paying the insurance premium for the
insurance for the Bay lifeguards). The Pine Walk Fair also gives an annual
donation to The Fresh Air Fund.
You’ll find a lot of unique merchandise at the fair. Yes,
your favorite vendors will be back, but we’ve got
several interesting surprises for you. There are new and
exciting participants offering
fantastic and varied goods for sale that include fused glass,
mosaics, stained glass, paintings (oil, water colors, acrylics, digital,) a
self-contained system of growing vegetables and plants, and board shorts made
out of a material from recycled water bottles - (please believe
me; there is no way that I could make this up).
And of course there will be several types of jewelry (beaded,
gold, silver, pearls, macramé, antique), children’s quilts and clothing,
vintage eyeglasses, t-shirts, pareos, hats, small stuffed animals that wear a
wardrobe of inventive garments, soaps, notecards, and maps
of everywhere you’ve ever wanted to be.
Many of our vendors have nationwide reputations; we are
so pleased to have them at our fair. And - please note the beautiful
2015 Pine Walk Fair Posters hanging all over Fair Harbor; the
artwork was contributed by vendors Jane Sklar and Max Cartagena who just won
first prize in the mixed media category at the Washington Square Spring Outdoor
Still more to see: check out the tables in front of the
firehouse. There are new books, hardcover and paperback,
offered at deeply discounted prices. And the reason we call them the
“miscellaneous tables? You’ll find merchandise for sale ranging from
teakettles to beach tops to stationery to insulated water bottles to children’s
toys, etc. In addition, many of our generous vendors have
given us a sample of their wares to sell at this table for the benefit of the
Fair Harbor Community Association.
Patrick and Melissa Adams of The Dock will once again be offering
all kinds of interesting edibles for sale at the fair. So – SHOP,
EAT, SHOP and then continue shopping without going home for lunch.
As usual, volunteers are needed to man the miscellaneous
table in front of the firehouse at the Pine Walk Fair. There
is a signup sheet with hourly time slots posted in the Pioneer Market; choose
the time that’s best for you. It’s a lot of fun, and a happy place
Please – let me appeal to everyone in Fair Harbor. This
event is a ONE DAY, ONE SHOT deal. NO NEXT DAY, NO NEXT WEEK!
Come down early – and
throughout the day. Bring your holiday weekend company; tell your
friends in the neighboring communities to join us. We are all
looking forward to another great Pine Walk Fair!
