Though the Great Allentown Fair was canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of the most popular food stands were invited to set up in the parking lot near Ag Hall to participate in Feast the Fair.
The usual bustling crowd found at the fair wasn’t on hand, but the vendors did enjoy seeing some of their best customers come to taste those unique flavors only found at a fair.
