The Mahoning County Junior Fair will hold their second annual trunk sale from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Canfield Fairgrounds. The Junior Fair trunk sale will have a variety of vendors, from people selling garage sale items to Thirty-One, Avon and Pampered Chef consultants. Over 30 vendors are singed up already.
The sale is open to the public, and admittance and parking are free. Those interested in being a vendor can set up that morning, and no pre-registration is required.
New to the sale this year is a cornhole tournament that will be held in the afternoon. A random drawing will pick teams. There is a small fee to enter the tournament, and the first-place team will win a cash prize. Also during the afternoon there will be a DJ as entertainment.
Money raised during that sale will go towards Mahoning County Junior Fair expenses. The goal is to raise $1,500 this year to benefit the Junior Fair.
''I think helping Mahoning County youth is important because they are an amazing group of kids. They come from all walks of life, but during fair week they become a large family. The Junior Fair is a fantastic program and benefits so many youth,'' said Junior Fair adviser and sale coordinator Kelly King of New Middletown.
Mahoning County Junior Fair benefits youths ages 5-18 who are involved in 4-H, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Grange, Campfire, FFA and Farm Bureau.
