Arts and craft entries triple for this year's Columbiana Co. Fair

LISBON — While you’re reading this, Gerri Moore will be judging entries at the Columbiana County Fairgrounds.

The process will continue into Monday, when Moore will open the doors so visitors can see — and smell — the winning entries. The last entries to arrive are the fresh-baked goodies.

Moore is the new chairman of the arts and crafts committee, and entries are way up this year. “There were 380 entries last year, and there are over 1,000 this year,” Moore said. She’s not sure why.

But she brings a professional passion to the unpaid fair board position. She ran the Hookstown Fair in Hookstown, Pa., for a decade and is a certified fair executive who has run shows with 12,000 entries.
