A week of events for Scalby Fair 2013 is well under way with preparation in place for the main event - Scalby Fair Day - from noon on Saturday.

On Monday, the Nag’s Head Challenge Run attracted lots of competitors, with a big increase on last year in the senior race.

Other events so far have included the Tony Peers Variety Show, Family Treasure Hunt, wine tasting and BBQ.

Tonight the Scalby Fair Quiz will be held at the Nag’s Head from 7.30pm. Tomorrow the pub will have Soul Rida playing live from 7.30pm.

On Friday there will also be a flower festival preview (£3 entry) from 7.30pm at St Laurence’s Church, with viewing until Monday.

On Saturday, the fair will get under way at noon with free entertainment.

Dance groups will perform for the crowds, along with the YMCA choir and musicians from St Augustine’s School.

There will be more than 50 stalls, selling items such as fruit, artwork, cakes, plants, cheese, cards, crafts and much more.

There will be a fancy dress competition for children judged by the Mayor and Mayoress, Andrew and Sue Backhouse, with prizes.

There is also a best stall competition, judged by Scarborough’s Town Crier Alan Booth.

Scalby Fair Week will draw to a close on Sunday with a Thanksgiving Service at St Laurence’s at 10.30am.
