Take time for quirky, fun Carbondale Mountain Fair

One of my most vivid memories of the Carbondale Mountain Fair is the sight of a cop patrolling the festival grounds in Sopris Park in the heart of Carbondale.
He had on his service belt, side arm, stun gun and cuffs. But he was wearing pink and black tiger-striped spandex shorts, a pretty healthy beer belly and a big smile.
He was the police chief. That is Mountain Fair, a little quirky and a lot of fun.
