Larchmont has talent, rides and fun at the Family Fair on Sun., Oct. 30 from noon to 5 p.m. The fair promises new attractions this year, and a return of the popular Larchmont Has Talent show.
And, did we mention cash prizes?
Winners of the talent contest will reap $500, $300 and $200 for first, second and third place respectively. The contest is open to amateurs of all ages and guaranteed to entertain, says Betsy Malloy who co-chairs the event with Vivian Gueler.
Musician Stephen Endleman returns as master of ceremonies. Past competitors of the seventh annual contest have shown off their singing, tapping, drumming, poetry and other skills at the talent contest. A pie-eating contest follows the show.
Talent contest tryouts will be held Oct. 23, the Sunday prior to the fair, at Coldwell Banker, 251 N. Larchmont. Jim Bloomfield, Larchmont-based acupuncturist, will judge.
Ice skating, bubble rollers and pony rides
Also at the fair will be a synthetic ice skating rink and bubble rollers, camel and pony rides, a petting zoo, slides and kids’ cars. A children’s costume parade will conclude with a judging of the best pirates, princesses and more at the event’s main stage.
Funding from the Larchmont Family Fair supports local schools, scout troops, service clubs and other religious and charitable groups in the neighborhood.
“We are thankful every year for the underwriters consisting of local medical professionals to local businesses to individuals,” said Malloy. “We could not have a successful fair without their help.”
