SHREWSBURY – Despite a forecast of rain, it was all sunny skies for Spirit of Shrewsbury’s Town Expo and craft fair. 

“I’m really excited that we got a good day because it wasn’t in the forecast,” said President Maria Smith. 

The festival was held this past weekend. Some of the festivities, like the expo and craft fair along with the Miss Shrewsbury Pageant, were held in person. Other activities, including the talent show and parade, were held virtually. 

That parade featured the Grand Marshal Robert “Chief Joseph” Terkanian, a photo of whom rode in the front seat of Smith’s car. 

“He is an amazing individual,” Smith said of Terkanian. “He is such a giver. He is such a community person. He donates and donates and has for years and years, but is such a humble person.”
