May Fair will take place on Friday evening, May 11 for “Friday Night Lights”, and all day on Saturday, May 12.
This annual fair kicks off with the popular “Friday Night Lights” Friday night will serve as a prelude to the main event on Saturday, and will hold a special appeal for young adults and kids, offering all of the carnival rides, music, and special food concessions. On Saturday, the Fair will run with its full array of rides, games, entertainment, and White Elephant and book sales.
The enormous May Fair White Elephant Tag Sale (9:00 AM – 4:00 PM) features thousands of items for sale including jewelry, furniture, rugs, china, crystal, art, collectibles, lamps, kitchenware, linens, electronics, toys, games, sporting goods, and lawn furniture. Delicious foods will be available for purchase including grilled chicken, smoked brisket, pulled pork, corn on the cob, hotdogs and hamburgers, pizza, ice cream, and many other treats including May Fair’s famous strawberry shortcake. St. Mark’s BBQ ministry, “The Holy Smokers”, prepare for May Fair long in advance, and stay up for days to smoke the brisket and pulled pork sold at the fair, using their trademark St. Mark’s Bell Tower BBQ Sauce. The Food Court will be open from 10:30AM-5:00PM, or until supplies run out.
The Get-About Shuttle will pick up/drop off at the lumber yard (Elm St.) across from Karl Chevrolet. A special bike parking area will be available to encourage guests to “go green” and ride to May Fair instead of driving cars and hunting for a parking spot. Please bring your own lock.
