The annual Bloomsburg Fair preview luncheon was held on Wednesday, Sept. 5, during which new exhibits, vendors and new changes for this year’s event were announced. This year’s fair, which runs from Sept. 22-29, will once again feature several Chamber members as vendors, as well as, for the second straight year, a special day for the Ronald McDonald House of Danville.
On Tuesday, Sept. 25, for each regular priced $8 admission ticket sold, $1 will go to benefit the RMHD and its mission of providing a “home away from home” for parents and families of children that are being treated for cancer or other serious illness. This marks the second straight year that the Fair is partnering with RMHD for this promotion. Children under 18 will also be admitted free this day.
WBRE-TV will once again be present at the fair and have several live broadcasts as well as the opportunity for patrons to stop by and meet the Eyewitness News Team and other on-air personalities.
Over 900 vendors are signed up to attend and participate at the fair. They include Chamber members 3B Consultant Services, the Columbia Montour Area Agency on Aging, the Columbia Montour Visitors Bureau, Geisinger Bloomsburg Hospital, J.A.
