Hard as it may be to believe today with the snow falling, but Saturday was a perfect spring day — just the kind you’d hope for the annual Prairie Village Earth Fair. The event featured more than 70 groups selling organic foods, seedlings, earth-friendly fashions, and more.

The event was sponsored by the city of Prairie Village and SM East.
