Craft classes are back for children and adults! Salt Fork Arts & Crafts Festival will be having craft classes during festival hours each day, August 11, 12 and 13, in Pavilion # 1 at the Cambridge City Park. Several local crafters, under the direction of Sue Cowden, have some exciting things for visitors to try.

Children will be able to paint Christmas bulbs, clay mushrooms or Ocarina clay flutes. Adults can try their hand at painting bird baths or planters, creating clever cards, or designing tote bags. All fees are very reasonable ranging from $5 -$10.

Class sizes will be limited so if there is something you especially want to participate in, register Friday afternoon in Pavilion # 1. Perhaps you'll decide to develop your artistic ability and become an artist at a future Salt Fork Festival.

Tina Kelsey

Wearing a tiara makes you feel fabulous no matter what is going on around you. Tina wears a tiara everywhere she goes from camping and shopping to doing housework. She actually made her first tiaras on a camping trip and hasn't stopped since. Now she makes them full time and enjoys the freedom of making her own choices and being her own boss.

Tina grew up in Cambridge (Class of '78) and enjoys coming back to visit her mother, Harriette Orr. The festival was an inspiration to her as she never before realized someone could make a living being an artist. Making people smile is what it's all about!

Cambridge City Band

One of those popular features at the Cambridge City Park throughout the summer months is the Cambridge City Band, now in its 176th year. Under the direction of Berk Jones, this group will be performing in the Big Pavilion on Sunday, August 13 at 3:00.

Musical talent is drawn from all directions to form this talented group, which features musicians from high school to senior citizens. All of them love music and enjoy entertaining their community with songs that are old and new. The addition of some fantastic vocalists makes this group complete.

Come to the Big Pavilion at the City Park on Sunday afternoon and hear Cambridge Singers, Salt Fork Festival Chorus, and the Cambridge City Band. It's a musical extravaganza.

Memory

My cousin from Springfield, Ohio and I always look forward to spending time together at the Salt Fork Festival. It's a happy atmosphere with wonderful vendors, good entertainment, and tasty food.
