Most things were recycled or composted. Only the tiniest amount of discards found their way into a landfill bin.

Kids played on a wooden chair that was so large it must have been made for a giant to sit on it.

A raised garden was constructed from split logs arranged into a pyramid. Many flowers bloomed in that raised garden. At the very top was a glass replica of a peach.

The fair became more crowded as mid afternoon approached. People walked peacefully in all different directions. Some aisles were blocked by people lined up to buy food.

Just after 2:00 in the afternoon, the fair had become so crowded that it felt like it might burst at its seams. It was at this hour that a few sensible folks found their way to the exit and to the shuttle bus back to Eugene.
