The first street fair of the year in Melfort is slated to take place today.
The event will be held on Burrows Avenue West from 5 to 8 pm.
“There will be a wide variety of vendors, a barbecue, street hockey, kids activities, and of course the ability to shop downtown businesses” explains Main Street Melfort Coordinator Kirby Hardwick.
She says previous street fairs have been successful.
“We have been fundraising hard throughout the year, most recently with our Downtown Derby event, so the funds that have been raised will be directed into the great local activities that everyone can enjoy” says Hardwick.
If it does rain tonight, Hardwick says they typically have to cancel, so they will keep their fingers crossed that the weather cooperates.
