The Key West Preschool Co-op on Flagler Avenue will host its 32nd annual Spring Fair from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, March 5 at 2610 Flagler Ave.

The fair will include its usual assortment of vendors, giant slides, an obstacle course and other kid-friendly attractions, live music and food. But for the first time ever, the fair will also include a celebrity dunk tank.

Are you upset about high taxes? Dunk Tax Collector Sam Steele (not that he sets any of the tax rates – he just collects them). Did you get a speeding ticket on US 1? Try to dunk Sheriff Rick Ramsay. Did you get arrested in Key West? Try dunking chef Sean Brandenburg. (Yes, the Chief still draws people in – trust me on this one.) Other local celebrities who have volunteered for a stint in the dunk tank include Conch baseball coach Ralph Henriquez and personality of Rude Girl Radio.

The dunk tank is for a good cause, all in the name of fun and the people who volunteered to dunk for the spring fair all have a great sense of humor.

The Spring Fair has been a Key West staple for almost as long as the Key West Cooperative Preschool, which was started by local parents in 1988. It is a non-profit school, where children families and teachers work together to help children learn and discover.
