The hallmarks of every Hillsboro Arts & Crafts Fair-quality exhibitors, a large crowd, good food and hometown hospitality-were in full force again this Saturday. Even though the day was young when this photo was taken, the Trinity First youth group was busy feeding the masses.

Jenny Wilson of Mound City replenishes the stock of college-themed yard signs in front of the booth she and Angie Hall operated on East Grand. They reported solid sales in this, their fourth year at the Hillsboro fair.

Betsy Shope and Kelsey Thomas, both from McPherson, enjoy an icy treat during a curbside break. With temperatures climbing into the mid-90s, cold treats and drinks were a hot commodity during the day.
