For the fourth consecutive year, the Seaford community will hold its celebration of seasonal change with the Seaford Harvest Fair. Located on the front lawn of Seaford High School (Seaman’s Neck Road, approximately 1/2 mile north of Sunrise), the rain-or- shine date is Sunday, September 26, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The fair will feature virtually all the artifacts of autumn you would want to view and purchase for home decor: cornstalks, mums, scarecrows, crafts and gifts, And what would an autumn harvest fair be without pumpkins? There’ll be tons of them to be decorated and/or purchased. Also planned: a good old-fashioned homestyle bake sale, lawn games, face painting, moon bouncing, raffles, clam chowder, popcorn, hot dogs, soda.
Then, scheduled at 12:30 p.m., a unique demonstration of trickery, illusion and slight-of-hand, performed by Magician Jim McClenahan. During the afternoon, don’t miss the opportunity to make a quick trip to the nearby Seaford Fire Department on the corner of Southard and Waverly Avenues. Once there you’ll experience E.D.I.T.H., the house that gives kids first-hand experience of what it takes to escape in case of fire or smoke.
You’ll also pick up some valuable lifesaving techniques from your hosts, Seaford’s firefighters. All funds raised at the Seaford Harvest Fair will go to the Seaford Historical Society for its ongoing program to restore the Seaford Museum. Located on Southard Avenue just across from the firehouse, this structure is a genuine Seaford landmark.
Built in 1893 as a one-room schoolhouse, it was later converted into Seaford’s lone firehouse, then donated to the Seaford Historical Society. Today it’s a charming community museum that, with funding, will one day enhance the education of Seaford’s school children as an offsite classroom. See you at the fair!
