Pesky drizzle can’t hamper street fair


BELLVILLE — Day two of the Bellville Street Fair started with uncooperative weather — the pesky drizzle continuing from fair day one.

Some vendors opened despite the rain, though people seemed more interested in seeing what was housed inside. A few walked Main Street with umbrellas.

An art exhibit at the Bellville branch of the Richland County Public Library had rows of art works, in paint, pen and paper, metals, woods, and clay.

A long line of art works done by elementary school students is colorful in blues and reds, showing the American flag in various way. These pieces bore blue ribbons.

A glamorous piece of metal art, made into a necklace, got a blue ribbon. It was done by Olivia Blubaugh.

A best of show in fine arts was an acrylic landscape, by Joyce Fenton.

An abstract art piece, by Michael Pfahler, dominated one display, with its colors of ombre and greens.

The younger set of artists had various types of displays. One standout was a piece titled “I am batman” by Joshua Bahr.

Major fair events were to start later in the day, with a performance by the Marching Princesses and the Buckeye Country Cloggers.

Weather cleared later in the day.
