The Annual Spring Craft and Business Fair took place at Riverlodge on Saturday, April 14th. 89 craft venders came out meaning there were less then normal. However, the day was still packed.
“We had lots of people come through. We had lots of food venders going on,” Marcy Rice. “It’s quiet but it’s been a good fair.”
Crafts included artwork, photos, leather work, wood work, knitting, jewellery and knitting. The food fair was well packed. There was horseback riding outside the recreation centre and a Zebra was almost brought down. However, according to Rice, it was too young to join in.
Quinton Freeman from Uplands Nursery put on three workshops during the Craft Fair. The first was on perennials, the second was how to keep flowers blooming longer through out the year and there was one on low maintenance gardening.
