The 36th Peru Fair this Saturday
The Peru Fair will be celebrating its 36th year on Saturday, September 26, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Peru Fair began in 1978 as the “End of the World Tag Sale,” but what has evolved is not what a tag-saler would ever dream of. Each year approximately 100 exhibitors converge on the tiny village of Peru to display and sell their arts. A parade of whimsical characters officially opens the old fashioned country fair at 9:45. Highlights of the Fair include art demonstrations, church exhibits of yesteryear, artisan crafts, music, dancing and foods for all tastes. A Pig Roast sponsored by the Peru Volunteer Fire Department starts at 11 a.m. The cost is $10 for pork, barbecue sauce, apple sauce, cole slaw, beans and a roll. Roast corn is $2 extra. Admission is $6 per person; proceeds are donated to the Peru Scholarship Fund, a non-profit organization that distributes educational scholarships for higher education to the children of Peru. Parking is available at Bromley Mountain. There is a free shuttle to and from the Fair. Handicapped parking is also available. Dogs are not allowed.
