Three AutumnFest Craft Fair locations busy throughout the day
ALGONA – Traveling down from Chanhassen, Minn., to set up the Simply Nuts & More booth at Bishop Garrigan High School, Cheryl Rich-Johnson was amazed at the number of people visiting her booth during the annual AutumnFest Craft Fair on Saturday.
“This is crazy,” she said. “It has been great. We only come down once a year and a lot of people come down to stock up.”
Rich-Johnson, along with her mother Judy Rich, were busy dishing out a variety of candy and nuts throughout the day. “This is awesome,” Rich-Johnson said. “I couldn’t come down last year. I was so disappointed. I love coming to Iowa. Everyone is so friendly.”
An estimated 2,600 people visited more than 140 booths at three different locations – Bishop Garrigan High School, Algona High School and Knights of Columbus Columbia Hall – during Saturday’s 24th Annual AutumnFest Craft Show.
