The Parsons Arts and Crafts Fair, held in Forest Park, moved from the downtown mall area in 2000 because a spring storm had damaged downtown facilities. But the fair came back to the park in 2001 because of its pleasant, shaddy fair-like atmosphere.

Arts, crafts, food, entertainment and pleasant people populated the day.
