    Great photos! This is one of the best craft fares around. Tons of cool thing to see and buy! I had to leave before I spent too much money. I have been attending this event for more than 15 years. It is well worth braving the heat and the crowds to go. Parking is terrible. My suggestion is to park at the back of Biltmore Station and walk over.
