More details have come our way for the 2012 Cranberry Street Fair this Saturday, October 13, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., from Hicks to Willow streets: While Eric Loffsfold and Bruce Edward play cool jazz throughout the day, take part in games and contests (count the cranberries and guess the weight of the pumpkin). Little ones are invited to paint mini pumpkins, while older children can explore the 205th’s fire engine. Also: fortune telling, artistic face painting and voter registration.
Children’s Yoga begins activities at 11:30 (no mat or age requirement); the Pet Parade is at noon (all entries take home the blue); and at 12:30, Mimi Soltana’s troupe Tribal Dance Manhattan performs (and then treats all to a belly dancing lesson). A raffle concludes the Fair at 3 p.m. And… the bar at Jack The Horse Tavern will be open from noon to 3 (restrooms at 11).
For sale: eats, autumnal flowers, books, Cranberry Street logo T-shirts designed by James Childs, fleas and collectible treasures. All proceeds go to neighborhood beautification.
Organizers invite all neighborhood residents to donate books, CDs, used but working electronics, toys and treasures. Please bring items to the Fair. There is also consideration for a Cranberry cookbook, so bring recipes! If you’ve made the dish, feel free to cart that to the baked goods table. Merchants who wish to donate to the raffle may also do so at the Fair. And finally, volunteer! Assemble at 10 a.m. in front of 23 Cranberry Street.
