New Salem FD holds 79th Punkintown Fair

To the Editor:
Save the dates: July 20, 21, and 22 — the 79th Annual Punkintown Fair, sponsored by the New Salem Volunteer Fire Department and Auxiliary is happening! Added sponsors for the 2023 Punkintown Fair are Ayers Automotive, Ballston Spa National Bank, Carl’s Advance Automotive and Repair Center, Family Danz Heating & Cooling, and Rentals To Go.

The Punkintown Fair is a family-oriented event that has been run by the New Salem Volunteer Fire Department at 694 New Salem Road since 1942. Parking and admission are free. The fair will start at 6 p.m. each night featuring a variety of rides, delicious food, and games for all ages.

There will be cash raffle prizes of $2,000 for first prize, $1,000 for second prize, and $500 for third prize.  Winners will be drawn near the close of the fair on Saturday night (no need to be present to win). There will be additional prizes added to the drawing this year.

All proceeds from the fair and raffle will be used to update fire and rescue equipment to provide services to the residents of the district. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the 79th Annual Punkintown Fair! Be sure to check our website, for additional details and information.
