Evanston’s Custer Fair revs up for its second and final day at 10 o’clock this morning — after a rainout Saturday evening.

Some scenes from Saturday afternoon to give you a sense of what to expect if you go today.

Musicians and street performers entertained the festival crowds throughout the Main Street Station shopping district.

About 350 arts and crafts people from across the nation offered a wide array of stuff.

And another 150 local businesses and commercial vendors proffered solutions to your everyday problems — from aching feet to a lack of the latest in cookware.

Diners at Trattoria D.O.C.’s sidewalk cafe got a close-up view of the festival action.

And then there’s the food — some 30 vendors equipped to satisfy your carnival food cravings — and perhaps your healthier ones as well..

Funnel cakes, cheese fries, corn dogs, deep fried snicker bars — it can’t hurt you if you only indulge once a year, can it?

The Highland Park Pops perform for folks who’d rather eat their carnival food sitting down.

The fair closes at 9 p.m. tonight.
