Yesterday, I was lucky enough to hang out at the nearly empty Bloomsburg Fairgrounds to see what the fair has in store this year (though I won’t be able to make it there this year – boo!).
Anyway, I noticed something that really caught my eye – a mural showing the contrasting aspects of the fair – the dark night when the fair was cancelled in 2011 and it’s return to glory in 2012.
Workers were busily working on the mural outside the Industrial Arts building:
I remember when the fair was cancelled. I was devastated. It was truly a dark time in this area.
Fair president Paul Reichart said the mural probably won’t be completely finished by the start of the Fair on Sept. 21, but it looks like it’s going to be close.
I look forward to seeing it all done and celebrating many more fairs to come!
