There will be a vast assortment of vendors, artists and local groups setting up their booths after school on Friday. The Cutest Patriot and Pumpkin Decorating Contests are two favored events. Beginning at 5 p.m. Cedar Grove Church of the Brethren will offer complete meals as well as ala carte items. The Friday evening program begins at 6:00 with The Little Miss/Mr. Patriot contest and continues at 7:00 with a music program provided by Tri-Village High School band and chorus and the crowning of the King and Queen, sponsored by the School Fair Committee, will take place for the 81st consecutive year. The Girl Scouts will be sponsoring Bingo in the commons area after the program and dances will be held at the conclusion of the program.
