WILLOW STREET, Pa. —Despite a little rain and a lot of humidity, fairgoers enjoyed sampling a variety of “cool” ethnic foods and learning about many different cultures on Saturday, July 18, at the Hans Herr House in Willow Street, Pa. Seventeen missionary families and more than three dozen vendors were on hand with delicious foods, interesting stories, entertaining exhibits, and crafts for children.
