With more handmade goods than you believe could be displayed around Argyle Lake in Babylon, as well as endless entertainment, rides for kids and plenty of food, you just can’t miss the society’s fair in Argyle Park, on Sept 10.
One of the “biggest” outdoor extravaganzas that Long Islanders look forward to, this fair is set to offer you the opportunity to shop at more than 275 craft booths. With items like Christmas ornaments, wreaths and dried flowers to clothes, jewelry and more fun trinkets, there’s certainly going to be something that catches your eye.
At this year’s fair, also look for vendors with local, farm-fresh produce, as well as pies and plants. The Country Store will be on-site, selling Vermont cheddar cheese and Argyle Lake Yankee Candles (special edition). There is also an extensive menu of tasty treats. Savor in the barbecue-inspired smells of roasted, buttered corn, sausage and peppers, and hamburgers and hotdogs. If you’re a fan of beer, check out the pumpkin beer, which is a staple of the upcoming fall season.
If you shop ‘til you drop, no worries; you can hitch a ride on the old-fashioned trolley, which gives rides around the fair. And, as you travel (whether by trolley or on foot) around the fair, most likely you will catch some of the live entertainment featured, from The Third Edition and JC Revue to the Banjo Rascals, and Joel Sikowitz and his swing band, all of whom are performing this year.
Have fun at this fair, but know before you go, you are also helping support the Beautification Society, as all proceeds from this fair go toward beautification projects in Babylon Village. Projects include holiday lights and decorations, trees and other plantings, and more than 900 hanging flower baskets.
