Sunny skies and warm temperatures brought in customers to Creekside Park in Rushford, eager to meet the returning and new vendors. Two events, a flower giveaway, sponsored by Root River Floral, and a homemade greeting card class, sponsored by Perfect Page Scrapbooking, provided additional interest.
