Love 'N' Care Street Fair: fun, food, entertainment

SUNBURY -- The 35th annual Love 'N' Care Street Fair will be held Saturday in Cameron Park.

The fair opens at 10 a.m. and runs until 8 p.m.

Proceeds will benefit the Sunbury Area Health Foundation. As in previous years, the fair is sponsored by the Mary Derr Rockefeller Auxiliary.

"We're thrilled to be part of an event that benefits an active foundation that in turn will support so many other nonprofit organizations and scholarships," said fair co-chairwoman Amanda Keister.

The foundation awarded its first grant in May in the amount of $25,000 to A Community Clinic Inc. in Sunbury. The auxiliary contributed $6,000 of the grant through proceeds raised at the 2006 Love 'N' Care Street Fair.

The theme for this year's fair, "Around the World," was inspired by Walt Disney World's Epcot, co-chairman Ryan Unger said. He hopes visitors enjoy the international flair the booths will bring to Cameron Park.

"We thought the international theme would open up a lot of ways for the booths to decorate their tents and would bring an educational aspect to the fair as well," Mr. Unger said.

As in past years, this year's fair will have plenty of food, including hot dogs, funnel cakes, hot sausage sandwiches, taco salads, pierogies, french fries, strawberry shortcake, fruit cups and ice cream.

There will be lots of games for children, Ms. Keister said, as well as lots of prizes.

Little ones can grab a duck from the duck pond, or play darts, ring-a-Coke or bean bags. There will be a lollipop pull, a straw throw and a basketball toss.

Children can make sand-art necklaces or, to satisfy their sweet tooth, decorate cookies or cupcakes.

New to the fair this year are pony rides brought by Stu and Amy Zeiders, of BABS Pony Rides. The ponies are part of a therapeutic riding program for disabled and mentally handicapped children.
