2011 Trade Fair a huge success!

Well, the Trade Fair is over for another year and it was a huge success. Sunny weather all weekend, with some wind but no storms. Participation was up 60% over last year! The public really loved the event and I hope everyone had a wonderful time. Special thanks go out to Greg and Marianne Leopold who made sure we had enough wood and their food was fantastic! A BIG thanks you to Mark Cory for handling the musket demonstrations both days and to all his "militia" for dirtying their guns for the public's enjoyment! Special thanks to Greg Sandor who helped round up the militia for the demo's and doing demo's on the side for the public.
Thanks to all the Vendor's who came out and I hope to see them all back next year. Of course, thanks to the staff of the Village and the volunteers who, without them, the Fair could not be held. The breakfasts were great and their cooperation immense.

Next year's Fair is already being planned. October 20 and 21, 2012! Get it on your calendar now and come back for updates as they unfold. Have a wonderful holiday season.
