$1 will buy loads of fun at Country Fair Saturday

Bring the family to Historic Ellicott City on Saturday, for juried arts and crafts, scarecrow making, pumpkin painting workshops, entertainment, food and fun at the 13th annual Country Fair.

The event takes place between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Ellicott Mills parking lot next to the firehouse on Main Street.

Admission is $1 for the festival sponsored by the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks.

Free shuttle bus services will be available from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. between the festival site and free parking at the county government complex.

Hands-on history interpretations by costumed, colonial characters have been expanded this year. Examine surgical instruments as a doctor from another era describes former medical practices, watch and listen as Lori Szarek weaves tales and treasures and explore a trunk of household items, glimpse tribal life and lore of the Susquehanock Indians and discover aspects of everyday life way back when.

The fair will offer more than 80 displays of items such as baskets, ceramics, clothing, country folk art, cross stich, silk flowers, fabric covered boxes, gourmet foods, hair bows, house plaques, iron work, jewelry and more.

The rain date is Sept. 19. For a recorded announcement of postponement due to inclement weather, call 313-4451. For fair information call 313-2762.
