Small town fun celebrated at Larchmont Family Fair

| September 27, 2018 | 1 Comment

RIDES for all ages will be part of the fun at the annual fair, like last year’s water rides in the middle of the street.

A pie-baking contest, haunt-ed house and lots of rides are among activities at the Larchmont Family Fair Sun., Oct. 28 from noon to 5:30 p.m. on Larchmont Boulevard.

A popular children’s costume contest will start at 1 p.m. Hosted by Coldwell Banker, princesses and pirates are expected among this year’s entries.

The Larchmont’s Got Talent show is for all ages. It will spotlight the neighborhood’s singers, dancers, comedians and other talented souls among us. The show starts at 2:30 p.m.

Bring your best song or dance, magic act or jokes to an audition on Sun., Oct. 21 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. at Coldwell Banker, 251 N. Larchmont Blvd.

All ages are encouraged to try out.

Winning cash prizes are $500, $250 and $100 for first, second and third place winners, said Fair co-chairs Vivian Gueler and Betsy Malloy.

A pie-eating contest is at 4 p.m., and John Duerler of Hancock Homes Realty will host a pie-throwing event (at him!) throughout the day.

Visitors to the fair can stroll the Boulevard as traffic will be blocked on Larchmont from Beverly Boulevard to First Street.

Water-on-Water Bubble Rollers are among the 20 rides sure to thrill at the event, organized by the Larchmont Boulevard Association each year since 1966.

Foods from around the world will be served: Korean barbecue will be offered by St. Brendan School, an In-N-Out Burger truck will be parked on the Boulevard, and local restaurants will be open.

Local schools, churches, temples and other charitable nonprofit organizations are encouraged to participate.

    Why don’t you say in your article that the Farmer’s Market will not take place on Family Fair Day? It would be a courtesy to those of us who attend the market every Sunday and do our week’s worth of shopping there to let us know the Farmer’s Market will not take place.
