Costume contest, talent show and  rides are at the Fair

The Larchmont Family Fair comes to the Boulevard Sun., Oct. 29, from noon to 5 p.m. This year’s “Fun for Everyone” theme seems appropriate, as the lineup includes a wide variety of entertainment, food and fun.

Visitors will be able to peruse the many booths set up along the Boulevard and can sample Fair fare including funnel cakes, sushi, bao bao, Hawaiian chicken, Mexican food, hot dogs and more from the food court, which will be set up in the Larchmont city parking lot by the Clock Tower.

Those wishing to imbibe can stop by the beer garden — featured for the first time at last year’s Family Fair — for American lager, IPA or Tangerine Blond brews from the M Special Brewing company.

Adjoining the beer garden (but outside the fence!) will be a stage set up for performers and contests. Students from Sophie Dance will start off the entertainment at noon followed by a Children’s Costume Contest at 12:30 p.m. Winners from each age category will receive medals, and candy will be given out to all participants.

“Larchmont’s Got Talent” contestants will entertain onlookers starting at 2 p.m., while they compete for cash prizes ($200 for 3rd place, $300 for 2nd place and $500 for 1st place)! Black Canyon Band performs classic rock throughout the day and will close the day’s entertainments.

Of course, the Boulevard will be filled with the traditional inflated slides, bouncers and more — including obstacle course inflatables. Fair-goers can enjoy these and can try their skills on a rock climbing wall or can get a stomach-dropping sensation on a bungee apparatus.

Bob Baker Marionettes, children’s music performers and a roaming fairy will bring smiles to the faces of the younger crowd.

For the first time this year, several farmers’ market vendors will make an appearance at the Fair. Visitors can buy seasonal fruits and veggies at booths set up around the food court in the city parking lot.

NEIGHBORS (over age 21) caught up with one another inside the beer garden picket fence at the 2022 Family Fair. The popular feature is returning this year.

To make room for the day of fun festivities, the Boulevard will be closed to traffic from First Street to Beverly Boulevard, beginning at 5 a.m. and will stay closed until 7 p.m.

The Fair has been produced by the Larchmont Boulevard Association (LBA) since 1967. Not only does it bring the neighborhood together for a fun, fall day, it also serves as a fundraiser to help the LBA pay for the Boulevard’s upkeep, holiday decorations and more.

Food, beverages and rides will necessitate payment, but admission and entertainment are free.
