DARIEN — Immense downpours neither stayed the crowd nor squashed the spirit of the annual fair at Hindley School on Saturday.

The “Hindley Happening” still drew tons of families, with rides, games inside and out, a silent auction, and lots of money raised for the school’s PTO.

“It’s not just for Hindley, but for Darien,” said Michele Treacy, PTO co-president, noting it’s been going on “at least 29 years.”

“Everyone steps in and helps to make it a great day for the kids,” she said, “and I’m grateful for everyone who comes out and supports us.”

“Even thought it’s bad weather, everyone came out supporting the school,” said volunteer parent Lauren Stevens.

“Everyone’s determined to make it a good time,” she said.
