Verona’s 25th annual Fair In the Square is this Saturday, December 3, from noon to 5 p.m. in front of Town Hall in the center of town. There will be a wide variety of merchants and food vendors and, as always, the event will end with the lighting of the town tree and the arrival of Santa around 4:30 p.m.

But there’s plenty more. Even before the Fair starts, the Friends of the Verona Public Library will kick off their annual sale of used books to fund programs at the Library. The sale opens on Thursday, December 1, with a preview night for Friends members only from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The sale opens to the public from noon to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 2. During the Fair, the sale will run from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The sale is held in the Jack Foley room in the Library’s basement and please bring your own bags.

(On Sunday, December 4, from 2 to 4 p.m. the Friends will hold a bag sale to clean out what’s left. Shoppers can fill a bag provided by the Friends for $5, but teachers pay only $2.)

At the Fair, visitors will also find a 50-50 raffle for the Verona Rescue Squad. Tickets are $5 and the drawing will be held at 3 p.m. You can also buy tickets in advance from any Squad member or by emailing [email protected]

There will be two opportunities to see Santa before he arrives on a Verona Fire Department truck. Children with sensory sensitivities can have a quiet, indoor visit in the Verona Library from 10 a.m. to noon. Parents should register for that by emailing Steve Neale at [email protected] Then there will be outdoor Santa visits on the bench by the Library’s front door from noon to 3 p.m. Families can take a picture with their own camera.
