I have been going to the “Huggins Fair” (now called the “Street Fair” though it is held, entirely, on a field) since 1992 — with at most 3 or 4 exceptions due to calendar conflicts. In the early days, when I did a LOT of toy shopping for the kids, we used to get there prior to the Friday morning opening and spend quite a few hours at the fair on both Friday and Saturday. I also used to buy a LOT of books (and by that I mean a few boxes at a time). Those days are now long gone.

Over the last 6 or 7 years we just go late on Saturday evening — basically to ‘treasure hunt’ when everything is on ‘SALE’. As the kids point out we are not looking for anything in particular — just things that catch our eyes (and that is also the case with books). This year, per plan, we got there just as 6pm — just in time for a sizable shower. But that was OK. However, the inclement weather scheduled for the evening had kept the crowds away. It was the QUIETEST I have ever seen this delightful Fair — but it was still, as always, lively and fun.

I was ULTRA selective in the books I picked up. Just a dozen I think — and 4 of them were pope books. I am now getting books for posterity — for my library WHEN I AM GONE! Has to be my old age. Doesn’t bother me. Not sure who will take the books BUT I plan to leave some good books for the discerning. I got some good (i.e., ‘rare’) books. That was all I got — plus two $1 hot dogs sans the buns. I spent $4. Teischan spent $3 — $2 on a HUGE cup of ice cream. Deanna might have spent a bit more. Way, WAY down from what we usually spend — and it is a good cause. I think we spent $60 last year and I normally budget $100 for the fair. Nonetheless we had a good time. Kind of strange that we did NOT buy any nicknacks! Usually we spend about 2 hours on Sunday sorting out all the ‘treasures’ we picked up. Not this year.

It is ALWAYS the 1st Friday & Saturday of August.
NO Sunday,
or as the song goes “Never on a Sunday”.

This year the 1st Friday of August is August 7. Hence August 7 & 8.

It is an annual ritual for us. Of late we just go on Saturday night around 7pm!

We don’t really need anything we just like the ‘thrill of the hunt’ when it comes to the ‘end of fair’ bargains.

Starting around 7pm, maybe 6 pm if the weather is ‘iffy’, they start having these “fill a bag” offers. I can’t resist. Just the fun of it. And it is a good cause. I set aside, each year, $60 to $100 for Huggins Fair. Ages ago I used to go spend hours getting books. Now I limit myself to a few books, if that, a year. Have too many!

So see you there, on Saturday. There is a ‘Great Waters‘ concert on Friday so this works out quite nicely.
