A fall fair this weekend will have Knox United Church in Parksville filled to the brim with garage sale items, including brand new novelties, antiques and electronics.

Knox United Church is presenting its annual Fall Fair on Saturday, Sept. 17 at the corner of Pym and Humphrey in Parksville.  The Fair is now an established presence in the Oceanside autumn calendar with its emphasis on family fun and fellowship, great food and entertainment and value-packed booths of all kinds.

The fair has been an annual Parksville event since 2003. Beyond the giant garage sale there will be concession stands, books, clothing, furntiure, jewelry, a silent auction, baking, preserves, fresh produce, plants and a tea room.

Outdoor activities will kick off at the garage sale and used furniture tent at 8:00 am with the Knox building complex opening at 8:30 a.m.  Breakfast and coffee will be served with best booth bargains going to the “early birds”.

During the day patrons will be able to browse the “Quality Corner” selection of intriguing treasures, snap up the ever-popular home baking, make their selection of great book and DVD bargains, try on some ladies’ gently-used clothing and compete for the best values at the jewelry, accessories and Christmas craft tables.

The free entertainment stage gets rolling mid morning, the children’s games open for action, the Silent Auction heats up.

Organizers encourage residents to park at Ballenas Secondary School and take the free shuttle service to the church.

Admission to the fair is free and all booth proceeds are returned to the community, either by direct donation to a rotation of worthy causes or as support for Knox’s ongoing programs that touch the lives of many people across Oceanside.
