Annual Peru Fair draws out the crowds

The skies were blue, the weather warm, perfect for the 34th Annual Peru Fair on Saturday, Sept. 28. This old-fashioned town fair  actually started life in 1979 as the World’s Largest Tag Sale. Now, however, it boasts more than 100 vendors. And it draws folks from all over for food, fellowship and fun, as well as music and the many artists and craftspeople who line the streets, shaded beneath tents. Proceeds from ticket and booth sales go to a scholarship fund for high schoolers attending college. All photos by Cynthia Prairie. Click any photo to launch the gallery.
