Francisco's Farm Arts Fair gets no rain but some wind

This year, the music area was moved to the amphitheatre. Food booths lined the area next to the McManis Student Center.

The 16th annual Francisco's Farm Arts Fair went off well and windy this weekend at Midway University. Midway Renaissance volunteers said the Saturday crowd was normal, but Sunday's was down a little due to threatening weather,  which wound up being only some moderately high wind. As a result, the fair closed at 4 p.m., an hour early to protect artwork, after 350 cars had entered. Saturday, 545 entered. The average was two to three per car, Renaissance President Debra Shockley said.
Haley and Nathaniel Wyatt of Midway watched woodworker Richard Adams of London turn a maple bowl.
John and Carolyn Malarkey of Lexington talked with weavers Petty Shepard and Mary Otieno of Kingsport, Tenn.
