There were a lot of local vendors, music, and food to enjoy.

Thousands of people showed up, including some of the Little League teams, along with a whole lot of fans.

"We've looked forward to coming all week long. It's great that the town opens up the streets to let everyone from all over come here to meet children who play softball and baseball. It's a good time," Starlett Bixby said.

Baseball star Reggie Jackson was even on hand signing autographs at the fair.
