Michigan Avenue was packed with people enjoying the 20th Sunflower Fest on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018. A beautiful sunny day was only outdone by the bright smiles on the faces of the people enjoying themselves at this year’s fair, whether they were eating, conversing with friends, shopping the many booths or checking out all the amazing classic vehicles. Live music and the smell of food battled for attention of people’s senses.
