A taste of Spring Fair

Homewood campus turns out for 40th annual celebration

They came. They saw. They ate. Lunchtime patrons devoured funnel cakes, pulled pork sandwiches, Flintstone-size turkey legs, fried Oreos and all manner of foodstuff at the 40th annual Johns Hopkins University Spring Fair. The inimitable carnival corn dog? Alive and well in all its cornmeal-battered goodness. The festivities began at noon on Friday, when Spring Fair’s arts and crafts vendors and extensive food court opened for business. What followed was three days of fun, food, games and shopping. More than 50 musicians were invited to play throughout the fair in four locations across the Homewood campus.

Ah, the sweet sounds and smells of spring.
