The forecast for the weekend of this year’s summer fair wasn’t so great, but that didn’t seem to keep the crowds away for long. This year’s fair was set up primarily on the parking lot between McAlister Intermediate and Suffield Middle Schools. There were plenty of food choices and the standard carnival rides which obviously appealed to many of the younger fairgoers. There were pony rides this year as well as a beer and wine garden tucked away behind McAlister. Several town organizations set up booths and many vendors had items for sale. The rain stayed away so Friday evening’s spectacular fireworks went off as planned.
Big thanks go to the many volunteers who make any event like this happen, but particularly to First Selectman Colin Moll and his administrative assistant Kris Lambert and her family, Shannon Foley, Colleen Phelps, Peter Leclerc and Dan Leonard from Parks & Rec, Olivia Eastman, Suffield Music, Suffield Police, Fire and Ambulance, Suffield school administration, teachers and families for their patience and sponsors Windsor Federal Bank, PeoplesBank, Artioli Dodge, Coldwell Banker – Salerno, and USA Recycling.
