When it comes to good old-fashioned fun, nothing beats the setting of the middle of Main Street during the First Congregational Church of Marion’s Annual Super Duper Fun Fair.
The event brings life and color to the village of Marion every year with its flower sale, colorful spines of the books stacked for the book sale, face painting, bright umbrellas, and kiddie games like knocking down cans with a ball, mini golfing, “fishing” in the little blue pool, and, of course, the big dunk tank.
On Saturday, July 27, tables beneath the big tent on the church lawn were lined with baked goods, “cake pops” arranged like a virtual rainbow, antiques, and artwork for sale – all to raise funds for the church’s activities.
It’s also the best place that weekend to buy yourself a lobster roll, or so say the people who return every year while yet another generation enjoys a taste of the joys of summertime in Marion.
