Cool weather prevails at craft fair

Clouds and cooler weather didn’t dampen the spirits of arts & crafts enthusiasts Saturday at the 43rd annual Hillsboro Arts and Crafts Fair.

Fair director Penni Schroeder said more than 280 vendors sold their wares to estimated crowds of 40,000 to 45,000.

Lydia Waldron, Hillsboro, enjoyed a playful sword fight with her mom, Sara, on Saturday. Sara said the $1.50 for the swords was well spent.

Cousins Baylee Randall-Hurt, 4, and Mason Nagel, 3, enjoyed cheese balls and a wagon ride while their parents shopped and enjoyed the fun atmosphere of the event.
