SJS Country Fair marks 25 years
The 25th annual St. Joseph School Country Fair will be staged from 8 a.m-3 p.m. on Saturday at the St. Joseph High School grounds. As always, admission is free and everyone is invited.
“This is the school’s main fundraising event,” said a fair spokesman. “It has become a Big Island tradition, and we are proud to offer this fun-filled day for the community to gather and enjoy. There’s a little something for everyone.”
The merriment includes carnival-style games for kids of all ages, a keiki train, jumping castle/water slide, laser tag and lots more.
Each year there is a great entertainment lineup. This year’s program will include Ahumanu from Maui, along with longtime friends Bruddah Cuz, Dru Kekaualua & Friends, Esther Zamora, Old School, the Girls Nite Out Band and Prodi-G.
The Country Fair will offer the usual favorite grinds, including hot malasadas, plate lunches, fresh baked goods and Thai salad. This year, the fair committee also will debut a breakfast plate from Big Island Grindz.
The Mauna Kea Astronomy Community will be sharing hands-on displays. There will also be exhibits from the Hawaii County Fire Department, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the Department of Agriculture and various participants from the Big Island local small business communtiy.
