Letter: Mountain Fair brings the Valley together

I write to you this rainy, but lovely, Sunday morning of Mountain Fair weekend in regards to the article Carbondale Mountain Fair Neighbors worried about noise, crowds.

The three neighbors surrounding Sopris Park complaining of noise should step inside the Fair for a minute and see the smiling faces from not just Carbondale but from the rest of the Valley and beyond. I understand sometimes in life there is nuisance of noise, but for an event that has been taking place for 42 years, bringing the town of Carbondale together to show its pride and sense of community, it just surprises me that: a) the neighbors of complaint would buy homes on Sopris Park (it is the most active hub for outdoor events in our town) and b) complain about it.

It’s for a weekend, silent by 9:30 — in the summer children aren’t even asleep by then. So please, neighbors, I invite you to go inside, take a look, dance a little and for one moment let go of what might be aggravating you today and see the joy that Mountain Fair brings to Carbondale.

I invite members of the community to stand up for Mountain Fair — show your support and let Carbondale and the world know how much you love it.
