A celebration of summer and smiles unfolded Saturday on Tappan Square at Oberlin’s 26th Annual Family Fun Fair. The event was filled with music, classic cars, laser tag, a hula hoop contest, face painting, food vendors, and more. Kids raced each other through a bouncy castle obstacle course and helped sink local “celebrities” in the fair’s dunk tank. Enjoy these photos!
