Lyon Park to Hold Spring Fair, Big Wheel Grand Prix

Lyon Park will hold its annual Spring Fair and Big Wheel Grand Prix on Saturday.

The fair is being held on the grounds of the Lyon Park Community Center (414 N. Fillmore Street) from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The event will feature carnival games, pony rides, moon bounces, a bake sale, a plant sale, food and drink concession stands, and live bluegrass music.

Following the fair, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m, the third annual Lyon Park Big Wheel Grand Prix will be held. Helmet-clad competitors — kids and adults — will careen down N. Garfield Street on plastic “big wheel” tricycles for racing glory — and to raise money for the community center’s upcoming renovation.

“Danger and adversity is no match for our fierce community,” says the official Lyon Park Big Wheel Grand Prix web site.

The fair is one of more than a dozen Arlington Neighborhood Day events planned for Saturday.
