Though the Saturday night showing of the movie "E.T." was postponed due to the forecast for rain, the first day of the 28th annual Five Towns Community Chest Fair in Andrew J. Parise Cedarhurst Park was full of fun in the sun with rides, games, food and music.
Children climbed into the seats of the Swinger, G-Gator, Sizzler and merry-go-round, along with several other rides.
Prizes were won at more than a few games such as the basketball toss and water ballon shooter.
Musicians performed covers of well known songs and original tunes from a solo performance by Long Island singer-songwriter Christine Sweeney to the rockin' Toby Tobias Ensemble.
A variety of food provided by Edibles on the Go, snacks from the Community Chest Youth Board, and ice cream and sno-cones, cotton candy and popcorn were available.
Sponsored by the Herald, the fair continued on Sept. 23.
