Smiling faces fill Chester’s 39th Annual Fall Festival

The  sun shone bright on Saturday, and broke through a cloudy Sunday, enough to keep food vendors and craftspeople busy and shoppers and tourists visiting the Rotary Club of Chester’s 39th Annual Fall Festival on the Green. Craftsmen and women from Chester and beyond dotted the Green, demonstrating their art. Filling the air were the aromas of fried dough, pulled barbecue pork, grilled burger and hot dogs and fresh squeezed lemonade. The mews of the cats and kittens at The Animal Rescue and Protection Society booth could barely be heard above the din of the crowd. Besides food — including a variety of fudge, honey and offerings from both Chester-Andover Elementary and Green Mountain Union High, shoppers could buy gifts of all types. Handmade jewelry, woolen mittens and leg warmers, baby clothes, handblown glass, paintings and photography and more were on sale.  Take a tour of the weekend events. All photos by Cynthia Prairie.
