When Lizzie Kelley, co-chair of the Winnetka Community Nursery School Children’s Fair, awoke on the morning of June 8 only to see gloomy skies and hear rumbles of thunder, she immediately wondered if Mother Nature was going to literally rain on her parade. But, much to her delight, regardless of a short burst of downpours, the crowds came, the music played and a 73-year tradition carried on, putting a smile on the faces of the hundreds of families who enjoyed this year’s games, rides, foods and fun.
