Green Fair on tap in Washington

The 50th Washington Green Fair will be held July 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Washington.

Offerings include a giant tag sale, a Yankee bakery, a ladies accessory booth, a plant pavilion, a jumpy house, face painting, horse wagon rides, a used book emporium, silent and live auctions, and food.

New this year will be a pig roast.

The tag sale will kick off at 9 a.m., and the live auction starts at 12:30 p.m. at the church on the Green.

The live auction will feature many items, including two collectible cars and two dog sculptures by local artist Dan Murray.

The cars up for auction are a green 1968 500 HP Dodge Charger with a 440 cubic inch engine (8 cylinder) and a manual 4-speed transmission and a white 2002 Mustang GT convertible with a tan top and interior, a 4.6 V8 engine and an automatic transmission with overdrive.

Making its debut this year at the fair is the newly created Washington Green Society, an organization dedicated to promoting the Washington Green as a historic district and as an important center of today's town life.

Proceeds from the fair will benefit the maintenance of the Green and meetinghouse.
