The Washington Island Lions Club continues an over 50-year tradition when it hosts its annual Island Fair this Saturday. Much like its Fly-In Fish Boil in July, the Island Fair acts as a major fundraiser for the organization’s efforts to provide upkeep for the island’s medical and performing arts facilities. Washington Island Lions Club member and town chairperson John Rader says like many similar events, the Island Fair acts as the last hurrah of summer for many residents and visitors.
The Island Fair, which features a parade, games, and fair exhibits, runs from noon until 3 p.m. on the grounds of Washington Island School.
