Rides, food booths and costume contest at Fair

BOULEVARD TENTS house local nonprofit organizations and Larchmont merchants at the annual Family Fair.

Larchmont Family Fair is on Sun., Oct. 29

The Larchmont Family Fair returns to the Boulevard Sun., Oct. 29, from noon until 5 p.m. with “Fun for Everyone,” as this year’s theme assures us.

This year’s Fair lineup includes entertainment, Bob Baker Marionettes, children’s music performances, a roaming fairy, a dance troup, a talent show and a children’s costume contest.

A food court will be set up in Larchmont’s city parking lot at the Clock Tower featuring such comestibles as Mexican food, Hawaiian chicken, hot dogs, funnel cakes, sushi and bao bao.

There will be the traditional inflated slides, bouncers and other inflatables to delight the younger crowd, as well as  obstacle course inflatables, a train, bungee rides,  a rock climbing wall and more.

The beer garden was a hit at 2022’s Fair. Returning this year, it will be set up near the stage so as to allow for a pairing of entertainment and beverages.

As usual on Fair day, the Boulevard will be closed to traffic from First Street to Beverly Boulevard. Booths will be installed “back to back” in the center of the street — facing the sidewalks — so that Fair-goers can peruse the booths while also engaging with Larchmont’s shops and restaurants.

Produce comes to the fair

New this year, a farmers’ market will set up in the Bank of America parking lot with seasonal fruits and veggies to offset the candy kids will collect two nights later on Halloween.

The Family Fair has been produced by the Larchmont Boulevard Association (LBA) since 1967  as a way to bring the neighborhood together and raise funds for the Boulevard’s upkeep, gardening, holiday decorations and more. Rides, food and beverages will require payment, but entertainment and admission are free.

Talent auditions Oct. 21

Auditions for the “Larchmont’s Got Talent” show will be held on Sat., Oct. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Coldwell Banker offices at 251 N. Larchmont on the corner of Beverly Boulevard. All ages are welcome to participate. First prize is $500, second is $300, and third is $200.
