It is one of the oldest community events in Southwest Jefferson County and this weekend, the 89th Annual Fairdale Community Fair will get underway with fun for everyone.
“This Fair has such a special place in the hearts of the people of Fairdale and this area and I want to commend the Fairdale Fair Board for another year of hard work and dedication,” says Councilman Mark Fox (D-13). “This experience is much like the old county fairs where people would come out to just see what’s going on, talk to friends and see exhibits, ride some rides and have a good time.”
The theme of this year’s event is “It’s Fall Y’all”.
The Fairdale Community Fair gets underway on Thursday night, October 10th with rides and then continues through Saturday night October 12th. All events are located at Fairdale Elementary and the Fairdale Playtorium, 10104 Mitchell Hill Road.
One of the highlights of the Fair every year is Saturday’s parade which begins at 12:00pm at Fairdale High School. There are some 21 entries in the parade this year which will leave the high school and continue down Fairdale Road then on to the fair. One of the special things about the parade is candy thrown by various groups to the crowds on the sidelines.
At the Playtorium, there will be a Homemakers Contest, Sweet Shoppe and Book Sale. Booths supporting local youth leagues, churches, cub scouts, the 4H, National Guard, local PTAs and of course the Fairdale Fair info booth will also be on hand.
On Stage for the Fairdale Community Fair:
“Fall is in the air and I want to encourage everyone to come out and join us for fun, entertainment and rides this weekend,” says Councilman Fox.
