The Ladies Village Improvement Society’s annual fair will be on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year brings the return of two perennial favorites — the carousel and the mystery gift booth — as well as all the usual offerings that fairgoers look forward to, from vintage clothing to toys and plants. 

There will be live music all day, face-painting, pony rides, a petting zoo, a “roving magician” to entertain kids, and a food court. 

Proceeds help to support the society’s many good works in the community and its annual scholarships.
