Raymond aims to bring community together at annual town fair
Though the idea of combining the town fair with Raymond’s Fourth of July festivities a week before has been batted around a couple times, chief planner Steve Welch said most residents prefer enjoying separate events in the summer.
The festivities began Thursday night with the 25th Miss Raymond Scholarship Pageant at Raymond High School, and continue tonight with a senior food and book sale, bingo, a silent auction, and more. There is a firemen’s parade at 7 p.m., and Dr. Harp’s Blues Revue Band plays from 6-10 p.m. at the bandstand in the Town Common.
Registration for the children’s parade on wheels (bikes, wagons, etc.) is 9:30 in the middle school parking lot, and the parade begins at 10. There will be alpacas from Folsom Farm at the Town Common, as well and magic, games and children’s entertainment, martial arts demonstrations, a dessert cool-off and meat ball supper, the Junior Miss Raymond Pageant and rides from C-R Helicopters.
Sunday features another pancake breakfast, the 38th annual High Holt Memorial 5-mile road race at 9 a.m. at the middle school, a firemen’s muster from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., more midway fun, crafts, a motorcycle show, the eat-the-town-fair competition and other entertainment.
