The Hollywood Fair Committee is busy making final preparations for the Annual Fair which takes place from Thursday 18th to Sun 21st August. The 2016 Hollywood Fair promises to be hugely entertaining with something of interest for everyone. The pre-1950s rural heritage theme of the Fair has proved a real hit with people. All in attendance embrace the spirit of the occasion and enjoy the spectacle of seeing each other dressed in pre-1950s attire! Whether it’s nostalgia for the past or something else, both the farming community and townspeople alike have been flocking to Hollywood in the last 5 years to be part of the celebration. The Hollywood Fair book is now on sale locally €5. As the Fair is only 8 days away all help is appreciated on their work evenings. The timetable of events for the Fair are available locally and further afield outlets. A further addition to our Play  on Friday night 19th August we will have the opportunity of seeing a beautiful garment made from recycled materials (Junk Couture) which came 4th in the All Ireland competition made and modelled by students from St. Kevin’s TY at 8.15p.m. in the Hollywood Centre.
