The Quad at was filled with carnival rides and game booths Sunday for the 14th annual Village Fair.
“This is the only fundraising event the holds each year and we do it to raise money for the community and also for the school,” said Chamber member Ramis Sadrieh, who co-chaired the event. “We also are allowing Chamber members to take out little vendor booths or tables to display their products and services.”
The event featured both pie-eating and pie-baking contests, food, music and entertainment by students from Fancy Feet Dance Studio.
“They bring a great crowd—very enthusiastic,” Sadrieh said. “We love seeing them dance and we are very happy they are here.”
The dancers spent six weeks preparing for the fair, according to Emily Kay Tillman, director of the studio.
“It’s so much fun. The girls look forward to performing here every year,” Tillman said. “They like to show their families and the community what they’re learning, and when they’re not performing they get to enjoy the fair as well.”
There were a variety of food booths plus homemade chili made by the firefighters from .
“It’s the best chili in town. Everybody should go by their booth and try some,” Sadrieh said.
The next Chamber event takes place when Santa and Mrs. Claus come to town Dec. 2 for the annual “” on Swarthmore Avenue.
