We Predict a Good Time Had by All

If you’ve been to one church fair, you’ve been to them all. There’s the bake sale area: cookies, cakes, and no complaints. There’s the craft area: because you can never have enough plastic doll heads with macrame bodies. And there’s the game area: You totally rule at tossing the bean bags (hand-sewn by the craft ladies) through the plywood with the holes cut out of it. But while most church fairs are like something out of the past, there’s one that’s looking forward. Literally. Come to the “Summer Psychic Fair” fundraiser at the Unitarian Fellowship of South Florida (3970 NW 21st Ave., Oakland Park) on Saturday and find out what the future holds for you. In addition to the usual food and vendors, from noon to 6 p.m., you can learn your fate from the runes, let the tarot tell your fortune, or if you’re into reminiscing, get a past-life reading. Each reading is $10 or three for $25 — every reading after three is only $5. Come on, even if you claim not to believe in psychics, you can’t pass up a bargain like that. Besides, they’re psychics; they already know you’re coming. Call Debe at 954-292-1581.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
