August 14, 2002
Good crowds, good weather and good food helped combine for a memorable Vinland Fair last week. “It went real well,” said Mike Craig, who along with his wife, Julie, were presidents of the Vinland Fair Board this year. “I was real pleased with everything. “We had a good turnout and we had good weather,” said Craig. “Everything went well. I’m tickled to death.” It was the 95th version of the Vinland Fair, which is held on the fairgrounds just east of the town and north of the Vinland Elementary School. The fair, which ran Thursday through Saturday, is billed as an old-fashioned community get together without a carnival and commercialism. It filled the bill and the crowds responded, as usual.
