Fair Haven is excited for their May Fest on Sunday, May 19th. Held in the town’s main park, kids of all ages have participated by dressing up as fairies, gnomes and other woodland creatures marching in the parade and participating or watching the May Pole dance. There will be free rock painting, a free bounce house, and over 2 dozen eco-friendly vendors in the park. There will be a raffle consisting of many local businesses to benefit the Sterling Nature Center. This year is the first time where a multiple school district-wide art contest was held and the winners will be announced and have their art printed on reusable shopping bags that will be for sale.
The Fair Haven area’s businesses have also been invited to participate in May Fest by taking the May Fest challenge, which is to change one thing for one day to do something for the environment i.e. giving up straws, giving discounts for bringing in reusable bags, using organic items, etc.
There is a Facebook event page that anyone can interact with and ask questions regarding this event.
