Young and old: Brothers ( from left ) Caleb ( 8 ), Ethan (6) and Zane ( 5 ) Garr, of Cromwell, were among those who took the chance to look through the historic Masonic Lodge building in Melmore Tce during the Old Cromwell Easter Fair.

The fun of the fair attracted about 1000 people to Old Cromwell on Monday.

The annual Easter Fair in the historic precinct proved popular and Old Cromwell co-ordinator Elisabeth Williamson said fine weather, lots of stalls and good entertainment were a recipe for success.

‘‘It's hard to judge how many people we had through but I think there was probably up to 1000,'' she said.

The day was ‘‘a good old-fashioned family fair'' and most people called in during the morning or early in the afternoon, she said.

There were some new stallholders this year and the entertainment included brackets of songs from the Cromwell Primary School choir, as well as a display of classic cars from the Alpine Street Machine Club.

‘‘We find a lot of people holidaying in this area call in at the fair on their way home and we also had quite a few motor van people this year, who are attending the [New Zealand Motor Homes] rally at the Cromwell race course,'' she said.

Proceeds from the day had yet to be tallied. The money would go into development of buildings in the precinct.
