The Springs Fisherman's Fair will be combined this year with the Springs Agricultural Fair. Set for Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. outside Ashawagh Hall, it will feature live music, vendors of clams, crafts, food, and fish, a plant sale, and a children's area.

Baking contests will be held for best pie, muffin, cookie, cake, and bread in two age groups, children 15 and under and adults. Contests for largest zucchini and largest tomato, best-tasting tomato, ugliest vegetable, prettiest flower bouquet, and prettiest chicken in the hamlet will take place, as will a bubble-blowing contest and egg toss. Merchandise from the Springs Improvement Society will be for sale.

Registration in advance for the contests is at or at the site on Saturday between 8 and 9 a.m. The 55th annual Springs Artists Invitational Exhibition will be on view inside the hall.
