Riley to headline fair entertainment
Trinity Standard -
TRINITY – Cal Riley will headline the entertainment at the 61st annual Trinity Community Fair on Saturday, Sept. 25. The Groveton native says he is “a prison guard by day and rock star by night.” The performance will cap off the fair activities at 8 pm Saturday night in the Pavilion at the Community Center. The annual fair will be held Sept. 24-25 on the grounds of the Trinity Community Center. In addition to the annual youth livestock show and auction, the event will feature exhibits ranging from fine arts to home canning and baking. There is no entry or admission fee to take part in the fair. Other entertainment planned for the two-day event includes Glenn Lenderman, a one man band with many faces. He will return to the fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25. Singlewide, a new local band, will take the stage at 4 p.m. on Saturday. On Friday, Sept. 24, singer/songwriter Kasey Lansdale will bring her unique sound to the front stage at 7 p.m. The Nacogdoches native says, “I sound only like one person, and that is me. People have told me they hear Janis Joplin mixed with Reba and Patsy Cline.” The Clear Creek Band will offer classic Bluegrass in the Exhibit Hall at 2 pm on both Friday and Saturday. There also will be dancing in the Pavilion throughout Saturday afternoon from The Dance Factory, Faye Burns Dance Studio and the Texas Lovin' Cloggers. Booth space is still available; however, the last date that applications can be received from food vendors is Aug. 24. Applications can be downloaded from the fair’s website at www.trinitycommunityfair.com. Acceptance letters will go out Sept. 1. A complete schedule of events is available on the website and will be published in the Trinity Standard closer to the Fair.
