Though the rain held off some vendors and even attendees, the ones who came seemed to truly enjoy the event.
The Craig County Library set up a kiddie pool where kids could make giant bubbles. Some enjoyed making them while others ran to pop them. It was a great hit of the day, as well as the glasses they handed out for everyone to be able to watch the partial solar eclipse.
Music was played most all day, starting with the Craig County High School Chorus, Merchant Copy Band played Rock’n Blues, and then bluegrass from Eastern Divide and also for the flatfooting contest. They had reunited and gave the crowd a great mini concert. The musicians were Tim Chaney, Rick Francisco, Michael Musselwhite, Joe Francisco and Mike King. To end the day, Phat Boyz Band played a variety of songs as people danced.
The Craig County Historical Society celebrated its 40th year of hosting the annual Fall Festival and had a country breakfast ready early in the morning, with other foods later in the day at the Old Hotel.
