As parades go, it’s tough to beat the procession that begins the East Perry Community Fair that will be held Friday and Saturday at the fairgrounds in Altenburg. Perryville, St. Vincent, Oak Ridge and Meadow Heights high school bands will take part in the fun that gets under way at 1:30 p.m. with Steve Meier of Jackson as Grand Marshal. Fair Committee Vendor Coordinator Vernon Shane tells KZIM KSIM it will be a great family friendly weekend.
Common Thread will perform at 6:30 p.m. Friday; Fineline at noon Saturday; and Backstreet Cruisers at 4:30 p.m. Saturday. Shane says the local food venders will have plenty of options and you will not leave hungry. There will also be rides, with arm bands for $20, and nearly 100 vendor booths. The fair schedule is available at eastperryfair.com. More information is available by calling 573-824-5322.
