WEBs irasburg chicken

It takes 125 split chickens to satisfy the appetites of diners at the Irasburg Church Fair. The Lefebvre family worked hard to make sure no one left hungry. From left to right, Gregg Lefebvre, Corey Lefebvre, and Paul Lefebvre work to adjust the birds to provide the most succulent and flavorful experience to fairgoers.

WEBs irasburg parade

A contingent of Bread and Puppet performers finishes its circle of the Irasburg Village green Saturday evening followed by firefighters representing Irasburg and its neighboring towns. The parade was a prelude to a fireworks display that wrapped up fair day.

WEBs irasburg rain

Rex Stelter enjoys a soaking during a shower Saturday afternoon at the Irasburg Church Fair. After holding off for most of the day, a brief cloudburst hit the village late in the day. Rex, a delighted 21-month-old, found that standing where rain ran off a tent got him as wet as possible as quickly as possible. For more photos of fair activities, please see page fourteen.
