Brooklin Spring Fair Decorating Contest

Everyone is excited that spring is finally here and that the warmer weather has arrived!  One of the great long standing traditions in Brooklin has been the Brooklin Spring Fair.  This year marks the 102nd year for the Fair and the community is excited!  I have had the pleasure over the years in sponsoring various areas within the fair, volunteering during the fair as well as helping to organize the parade for the last few years.  There are so many dedicated volunteers that work tirelessly to bring the Fair to Brooklin each year.

I am excited to share with you that our Brooklin Spring Fair Decorating Contest is back again and we invite you and your family, or local business to participate.  It’s a great way to showcase your creativity and also you can win some great prizes as well!  Please visit the weblink for more details about the contest and about Brooklin Spring Fair Weekend.

I hope to see you & your family out and about during Fair weekend – I do hope that you will consider entering your home in the contest!

  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article
    seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the
    issue solved soon. Thanks
