A chilly but brilliant day Saturday brought hundreds of visitors to Hadley for the 32nd Hartsbrook School Holiday Fair. Students filled the air inside and out with live music — classical, contemporary and a cappella — as King Winter charmed children with snowflakes and fairy dust, and a town crier kept the wandering throngs informed of the next storytelling or marionette show.

While volunteers in one hall offered crafting sessions on felting, finger knitting and star folding, those in another helped kids dip candles, decorate cookies and make jump ropes. Outside, the lines for the pony and hay-wagon rides were only a little shorter than those for freshly made caramel corn or steaming bowls of hot chili. With only colder days on tap for a while, those who attended the fair found a good way to bridge the change from fall to winter.
