    It is August and you are in Webster. Time for the Webster Village Days celebration.

    The Webster Business Improvement Committee sponsors a festival on Saturday and Sunday to promote the local sales. (See the website below for the exact dates this year).

    Fifty artisans line the Main Street ready to exhibit their crafts and sell their wares. Street carts of food and the local restaurants have plenty of things cooking to whet your appetite and quench your thirst. Performers will be singing and dancing at the town gazebo.

    There are a whole list of activities (see the website below) like sand painting, martial art demonstrations, flea market, a young-ladies' fashion show, sand castle building, fishermens' demonstrations, etc. etc. Adults can enjoy the car show and kids can participate in sidewalk grafitti. If you are in good shape you can enter the chair race or the bed race for prizes.

    See the website for parking.

    Webster celebrates summer on the first week of July (but not on 4th of July) and this year (2006) it is the first of July. The place is the same as it has always been: Webster Fireman Field.

    This is a typical town fair with carnival rides and clowns and fireworks. There are food vendors galore and stage entertainment. The Webster Parks and Recreation Department sponsors the event and access is completely free.

    The festivities start at noon with activities for the kids; face painting, craft/gift making, kids rides and entertainment (clowns, magic act). By 5pm, the emphasis changes to adult bands (local and national stars) and the food vendors are in full swing with hots, hamburgers, french fries, cotton candy and beverages. This continues until 10pm when the fireworks show begins. Everything finishes by 10:30pm or so.

    There is parking area at the Fireman Field but it is somewhat limited in size and you may need to park on the nearby side streets. Fireman Field is on Sanford Road west of the school.

    Behind the Baptist Church in Webster, from June to October, you will find fruits, vegetables, herbs, baked goods, local craftworks, and friendly Websterians on Saturday mornings.

    There is a wide selection of freshly picked crops depending on the season. The pies and jams and honeys are always good. The artisans in the colorful striped tents are like any you find at local crafts shows; they are busy making more of whatever it is they are selling, so you can buy something or just stand and watch them do their thing.

    to get there:
    route 250 in webster (59 south avenue) just south of route 404 (main Street)
