L.V.I.S. Fair Saturday

Durell Godfrey

Topping the weekend’s agenda here in the village must be the Ladies Village Improvement Society fair on Saturday, the organization’s 117th, by the way. The gates at 95 Main Street open at 10 a.m. One can also enter via a gate in Herrick Park near the basketball courts.

All the usual attractions, including for the young ones, games, a carousel, a petting zoo, pony rides, and children’s authors are being prepared. For adults there will be vintage goods, select highquality clothing, plants, and a range of raffle items. Food choices will range from hot dogs to gourmet.

The East Hampton Lions Club will open a clam bar at 2 p.m. and begin serving barbecued chicken at 4. Early takeout will be available from 3 to 4 p.m. A silent auction in connection with the fair has begun. Bidding is at lvissilentauction. com. Lots run from rare wines to Caribbean vacations; there are 150 to choose from.

In preparation for the fair, the L.V.I.S. Bargain Box and Books shop will close today at 3 p.m. and remain closed all day tomorrow. It will be open during the fair, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
