CARDINGTON — “The rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the people attending the Cardington Street Fair,” said Lea Ann Maceyko, president of Friends of Cardington, who organized the event.|

“They just took cover in a tent and waited ’til the rain stopped and continued to enjoy all of the many events.”

It was estimated the attendance reached 2,000 during the event which began Friday evening and continued through Saturday. McGuffey Lane topped the entertainment and the Fireworks sponsored by CYT capped the event.

Cardington Mayor Susie Peyton was pleased.

“In spite of the rain, people stayed..”

She thanked all who attended and gave a special nod to the village’s business owners for their support. “ We couldn’t do this without them.”
