Square Tomatoes Crafts Fair to celebrate Geology Day

By
From page A5 | July 10, 2013 |

The Square Tomatoes Crafts Fair will come to Central Park on Sunday with artists and artisans, more than 40 booths, food, live music, lavender and Geology Day. The fair will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. under the shaded pavilion in the park, Fourth and C streets.

New vendors include Sherri La Beske selling items for babies and Denise Sergent, a maker of soap and wooden gift boxes. Carole Wheaton will deck the stalls with bouquets of fresh and dried lavender.

“Lavender is a natural stress reducer, and it smells great,” Wheaton said.

Jan Peters and Laura Tjoelker of The Blackbird will play Irish music.

Fair organizers are planning a celebration of Geology Day with a presentation of “If the Earth Lived a Year,” a time-travel journey where 4.5 billion years of towering geological epochs are compressed into a 10-minute talk.

“Time travelers will face talking dinosaurs, terrifying extinctions and certain death,” said “lead tomato” Sally Parker, “but it’s free.”

Geological milestones are identified by months or days of a year rather than millions and billions of years. Visitors complete an interactive timeline and open and envelop with periodic messages from “Our Esteemed Ancestor.”

The presentation will start about noon, but visitors can walk a geological timeline on the lawn anytime during the fair. Monica Riche will staff a table where visitors of all ages will paint pet rocks and search for free fossils. Dinosaur coprolites (fossilized dung), gem-quality ammonites and fossilized coral will be available for purchase.

The Square Tomatoes Crafts Fair is a monthly festival in Central Park on the second Sunday of each month. For more information, see SquareTomatoesCrafts.com.
