First Annual Children's Peace Fair
The first annual Children’s Peace Fair took place on August 6, 2019 at the First Congregational Church of Binghamton. In addition to the decades long tradition of ringing the bell in remembrance of Hiroshima, children from all walks showed up to sing dance and play.
More information, and a video by Vera Scroggins, capture the uplifting activities of peacemakers in the making.
Due to COVID-19, we did not have a fair in 2020; instead there was a brief gathering in remembrance of Hiroshima 75 years ago.
