First was the massive one sponsored by the Catholic Church’s McHenry County Deanery.

Last time the display of baby footwear had people looking closely at it. This year, I stopped by in mid-afternoon on the first day of the County Fair and traffic was slow.

As before, I especially liked the display of baby booties and shoes.
