It's fair weekend in Unionville!

09/29/2015 10:04AM ● Published by J. Chambless

The tents are up, and the 91st Unionville Community Fair is ready to greet its first visitors this weekend.

After months of planning, the organizers will be opening the annual celebration on Sept. 30 by welcoming exhibitors in the Red Exhibit Barn. Those who are bringing items to exhibit are asked to check the fair's catalog to make sure the entry qualifies. Drop off your entries between 2 and 9 p.m.

Thursday, Oct. 1, is a day for set-up and judging, and the fair isn't open to the public, but the Seventh Annual Denim and Diamonds Dinner and Fundraiser on Thursday from 6:30 to 10 p.m. will kick off the excitement in a big way.
