Saturday, July 28, 2018

The 60th Canterbury Fair took place Saturday, and for the past 25 years, the volunteer-run event has been spearheaded by Lisa Carlson.

Carlson stepped up to run the fair in her second year as a Canterbury resident and first fair volunteer experience. Giving back to community has always been important for Carlson.

“These are my friends. These are my neighbors. This is my family. This is where I live. It’s my community, and I firmly believe that if you live in a community, you should act like it,” she said. “So that’s what volunteering is all about. It’s bringing community together and teaching our children how to build community.”

This year’s fair included Morris dancing, a 5K road race and 2K kids run, book and antique sales, artist and craft booths, local musicians, artisan demonstrations, children’s activities, a food court, a chicken barbeque and more.

The annual event takes place on the last Saturday in July each year.
