Springfield's Summer Fair: 'We have so many resources here and want to bring that to life for families'

EUGENE, Ore. -- Springfield felt the sizzle of the season Saturday as hundreds came out to enjoy the 2014 Summer Fair at Island Park.

Face painting, ponies and a bouncy house keep the kids entertained while adults peruse the dozens of booths representing organizations from across Lane County. 

“(It’s) all about bringing families together and showing them what kind of resources and opportunities there are for kids in Lane County,” said Jennifer O'Brien, Springfield’s Community Recreations Supervisor. “We have so many resources here and want to bring that to life for families.”

Admission was $1-per-person going to Willamalane or a canned food donation to Food For Lane County.
