Fun Fest day itself was the nicest day of the entire week that preceded it… cooler, and actually rain free! It was almost as if the weather man wanted to make sure people wouldn’t miss the event. Check out the abundance of smiling faces amongst the vendors and participants… recognize anyone?
Above you’ll note Neil Stalter of Diamond State Financial and his wife Melinda chatting with Suehad Carlisle of (Creative Travel) and family. Carol Mack of Beads by Carol had a display of her handiwork, and in addition to scrapple, other treats were available at the several food truck exhibitors, above we see some of Dierdre’s Garoutte’s satisfied Kona Ice customers.
Below we see Lois Hoffman, the 1st 1/2 of The Juggling Hoffmans, doing some face painting, CPA Eric McCallum, who apparently finished an earlier race and Megan Varley were making the rounds. Realtor Denise Allen and mom were manning her Keller Williams table.

Next Will Webber, “The most interesting Realtor in Delaware” is checking out the scrapple macaroons… and amateur chef and scrapple contestant Paul Rada serve up some of his tasty craft.
Wess Reynolds and New Castle County Police team insure peace and safety by giving overwatch to New Castle County, includding activities at Fun Fest. Also attending and manning a booth were Friends of the Mounted Patrol, being visited by Carol Mack and family friend.
Next we meet the judges: Laura Delpercio, Michael Kelly, State Rep. Paul Baumbach, Rappa Scrapple’s John Curtis. Laura is a well photographed client of mine both as a former bride of CreativeImageWeddings.com, and as a woman featured in the book, Pearls, Women Who Radiate Success by Delaware businessman and musician Fred Dawson.
I had the privilege of photographing Laura and woman featured in the two earlier editions of Fred’s book and am in the process of photographing those in his third sequel. It’s an encouraging read documenting interesting stories about local… women who radiate success!
