Blessed with good weather, a record crowd of nearly 50,000 people attended this year’s Arts & Crafts Fair, according to fair director Aldina Franz. “It started out very well,” she said. “The weather was just perfect and set-up went really well.” Franz said the police and Emergency Medical Services workers reported no major problems. “It looked like more people than previous years,” she said. “They were from one end of the street to the other. It just made for a very good day.”
