BELVIDERE (WREX) — Sunday was a day to indulge in crafts at the Boone County Fairgrounds.
The Fall Diddley Arts and Craft Festival featured handmade crafts for everyone to enjoy. The annual event was hosted by the Mental Health Resource League for McHenry County.
This is the 27th time the craft show has been at the Boone County Fairgrounds. Organizers say this is a great opportunity for families to get together.
“I think we see a lot of families come out. We also feel like a lot of, I have some girlfriends that come with their sisters every year and their moms and they bring them all out and do shopping. So it’s really fun just to see the families come out and be able to just spend some time doing things together,” said Kristy Isonhart from the Mental Health Resource League of McHenry County.
More than 300 vendors were in attendance for the weekend long festival.
