The second annual Street Fair which will be held this Saturday, June 26, at the Grace Church Parish grounds, has been planned so that there will be something doing every minute of the day for men, women, and children.
At ten o’clock in the morning, the fun will begin when the Midway opens featuring a popular sport, ’’Wild Animal Hunting”.
Everyone can have a shot at Teddy Bear, Stuffed Jumbo, Wild Kitty, and Easter Bunny. Good hunters will be rewarded for their efforts.
The special tables will also be ready at 10 a.m with cards, aprons, food, gifts, white elephants, children’s wear, toys, devotional articles, mission handcraft, and refreshments—in fact, all the tables one would expect to find at a Street Fair.
In the afternoon, Mrs. William j Sheppard will put in her appearance ready to tell fortunes of all who want to peer into their future, The children will be well enter tamed with Crinkle the Clown, pony rides, “Living Pictures.’’, doll carriage and bicycle parade and games especially set up for them.
From three to four-thirty, tea will be served in the shade of the old apple tree at the rear of the church, from five to seven, a baked bean supper will be ready for those who enjoy a real New England meal, and in the evening for those who like to trip the light fantastic, a dance will be held to the musical strains of the Falconer’s Orchestra.
