This Saturday, May 10, peaceful and leafy Clark Park springs to life with two lively community-driven events.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Spruce Hill Community Association is set to hold its annual family-friendly May Fair.

Check out live music by four local bands, food from University City’s top vendor trucks, a kids’ obstacle course and a bounce tent, as well as high-quality handmade goods by local artists and crafters.

Plus, look for a used-book sale and University City Garden Club-sponsored plant sale, in addition to information booths from other local groups and causes.

There will also be a raffle, with prizes donated by University Pinball Family Fun Center like a 60-inch Samsung plasma television as well as tons of gift cards and service vouchers from local merchants.

In addition to the one-day May Fair festival, the Spruce Hill green space is also home to The Food Trust’s Clark Park Farmers’ Market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Established in 1998, this market is one of The Food Trust’s largest and operates year-round.

Now that it’s spring, though, look for a wider variety of organic fruits, heirloom vegetables and cut flowers to hit market stands.
