Lapel Village Fair takes off today

Hometown headliner Doug Anderson returns

LAPEL — Lapel is the place to be this weekend if you’re looking for fun, food, music, entertainment, shopping and a little bit of everything that celebrates the community.

Lapel boasts a population of just a little over 2,000. The number booms to more than twice that size during the fair. This marks the 24th year the village has hosted the event which kicks off today.

“Everybody looks forward to it,” said Nancy Hinkle, organizer and member of the Lapel Community Association. “It’s just a lot of fun.”

Noting that a lot of class reunions are scheduled to coincide with the fair, she said, “We have a lot of people back home.”

In addition to all the traditional excitement, award-winning, nationally known gospel singer Doug Anderson takes the stage to bring his hometown a free concert Saturday night. He’s making the stop while touring this summer following the release of his new CD, “Feeling at Home: The Back Porch Sessions.”

Town wide rummage sales are already in gear today. By evening, food and game booths are open for business, along with entertainment under the tent, and at dusk, a movie showing,“The Lorax,” in Woodward Park.

Saturday is, of course, the big day. Starting things off bright and early, it’s the 14th annual 5K walk/run to benefit the Cornelia de Lange Syndrome(CdLS) Foundation. Organizer Scott Hersberger said that his family got involved with the foundation shortly after his son, Conrad, was born and diagnosed with the genetic syndrome 23 years ago.

“It was a very valuable resource to us,” said Hersberger. In addition to supporting research, the foundation provides education and connects families affected by the syndrome. Hersberger expects more than a hundred walkers and runners for the 5K event. Register between 6:45 and 7:15 a.m., to race at 7:30 a.m.
