Glen Ellen Fair set for Oct. 12; visiting the progeny

Filled with frivolity

Despite the empirical evidence that we’re deep in the dry throes of summer – hot days, cool evenings as the fog moves in, and grasses already a golden yellow – we had a little rain last week, an early morning, brief shower, a blessing that was over too soon. Today already, I bring you news for October. So what’s special about October? For the past 23 years (or more, depending upon whom you consult) our Glen Ellen Village Fair has arrived on the Sunday of Columbus weekend, generally around the 12th of October. That is the exact date for this year, and all afternoon the streets of Glen Ellen, our town, will be filled with frivolity and pleasure.

Prepare for a grand party

Shannon Lee, the fair’s official press person has sent out the news: prepare for a grand party this coming Oct. 12. Here is Shannon’s good news:

We are officially announcing the 24th annual Glen Ellen Village Fair, to be held this year on Sunday, Oct. 12, noon to 5 p.m., on Arnold Drive between London Ranch Road and Warm Springs Road. Vendor applications are available and booth space fills fast, so email glenellenfair@att.net to request yours. The quilt raffle is ongoing. Find this year’s beautiful “Flowers of Wild Glen Ellen” quilt outside the Glen Ellen Village Market on Aug. 9, Sept. 13 and Oct. 4, where tickets will be on sale individually for $2 or in bunches of three tickets for $5; seven tickets for $10, and 15 tickets for $20. Proceeds of past raffle ticket sales have benefited the Glen Ellen and Mayacamas fire departments, Dunbar School and other local charities.
