Bubbly personality

Five-year-old Chloe Dowd of Lisbon is mesmerized by the giant bubbles being created by Cheryl Kear of Poland. Kear appeared Saturday during the 6th annual Pumpkin Festival at the Columbiana County Fairgrounds. She is best known for the award-winning kites she designs and flies at the annual festival. With no breeze available and intermittent rain drops Cheryl turned to her giant bubble kit to entertain the crowd at the fairgrounds. (Salem News photos by Patti Schaeffer)
