The fair, which runs from noon to 5 p.m., will have 250 vendors selling food and crafts. There will also be a children’s section with small rides.

The Babylon Beautification Society, which runs the fair, raises money for projects such as streetside planters and maintenance of the village clock. Last year’s fair netted $35,000, officials said.
