The Washington Island Lions Club hosts one of the last major events of the season in the town when it hosts its Island Fair this weekend. Since at least 1903, the Island Fair has provided visitors and residents with the joys of a carnival including rides, games, and a noon parade. Lions Club member Jeff Heal says all the money raised from the event stays local.
The Island Fair is Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. on the Washington Island School grounds.
