Paul Philpott, a senior at Weston High School, is looking forward to the rides at the annual Weston Fair this weekend.
"The Rip Cord it takes you up and 'click' you drop down," said Philpott. He will also be attending the parade Monday. "The best part is the end with food, drinks and the band."
Matthew Mintzer, also a senior, said he looks forward to seeing the old cars in the parade. "You see people who were in the actual wars and think about that and be grateful and thankful to them," said Philpott.
The annual Memorial Day Fair at Hurlbutt Elementary School runs from noon to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and from noon to 5 p.m. Monday. The fair features carnival rides, crafts, games, music, contests and raffles. The Kiwanis Club of Weston will have its food tent with classic grilled favorites and other treats such as strawberry shortcake.
Ride tickets may be purchased at the fair for $25 for 22 tickets. Unlimited ride bracelets, $25, are valid from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday or Sunday. Each bracelet is good for one night only.
The St. Baldrick's Foundation will have a booth for those willing to shave their heads to raise money to fight pediatric cancer. Participants may preregister here or at the St. Baldrick's booth at the fair on Saturday.
Lyette Segerdahl said she expects half of the town to march in the parade Monday. The parade will start marching at 10:45 a.m. on School Road and continue to take a left on Weston Road, a left on Norfield Road and end in front of Town Hall. There will be a ceremony at the gazebo with the raising of the flag and placing of a memorial wreath at the garden. The Fire Station will have free hotdogs and drinks.
