Saturday, May 4 is that magical day when the SCA Fair returns to Manhasset. Held at the Munsey Park School on Jimmy’s Field, rain or shine from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., this unforgettable event will offer many exciting attractions. Chaired by Daniela Buchholz and Dianne Tolentino, with tremendous help from Santina Petruso and Concetta Slaney, the fair will offer many exciting attractions, including thrilling rides, such as Gravitron, Pharoah’s Fury, the Round Up and Super Shot. Sample a selection of foods from the International Food Tent and visit the SCA Grill and hot dog booth for authentic fair grilling. You can also shop the wide variety of wares offered by vendors under the Big Tent, scale a rock climbing wall, test your strength at Iron Man and have fun enjoying a great selection of rides, games and activities for all, including face painting, baseball pitch and pie throwing. Make sure to stop by the grand raffle booth and enter to win some really fantastic prizes!

The SCA will accept children’s books, fiction, novels, art, cooking, home and garden books. Sorry, but the SCA cannot accept textbooks, manuals, encyclopedias, business books, or record albums.
