Castleton resident, Graham Norcutt, gives this final reminder of the Castleton Corn Roast and Street Fair in a press release issued Friday.
Come out and enjoy Castleton’s first annual Street Fair and Corn Roast on Sunday, August 23rd. A fundraiser for the refurbishing of the Castleton Library, the day will offer something for everyone. The corn roast is a long standing tradition in Castleton and has drawn people from far and wide over the years. This year it is expanding to include a variety of other attractions.
From a dunk tank to face painting and a wandering clown; from popcorn to locally grown corn on the cob; from candy floss to jumbo hotdogs, there will be lots to enjoy. Vendors and garage sale tables will line the street with an old car show adding to the attraction. Also, there will be road ski race competitions for the agile and activities for the ‘young at heart’.
There will be a draw for interesting prizes - a Trish Romance print donated by Rhonda’s Antiques and Art - a beautiful necklace and set of ear rings, donated by Sue van de Wyst, a wireless computer printer and a three-headed shaver donated by the Norcutt Family.
The main feature of the day will be world famous Cobourg Lutheran Minister Reverend Fast, who will be attending to amaze all of us with a demonstration of his strength and dexterity.
A walking tour of Castleton will also be available to relive the local historical background and explain the different stages Castleton’s once vibrant hamlet community of 850 residents has experienced. From prime apple growing to the tobacco farming boom, an interesting tale of an era gone by will unfold.
The day will start at 10:00 a.m. and will be a fun day for the whole family. It is hoped this will become an annual fundraising event that will grow in popularity and support local events and projects.
Tables are available for vendors or garage sale items. For further information, please contact Sue at 905-344-7232 or, Graham at 905-344-7000.
