“The story of this year's Market Days should be written in superlatives…(it) was a family-friendly party worthy of a capital city…Visitors ricocheted around downtown from one contest, concert or display to another. (Attendance) probably topped 50,000. Merchants were smiling.” (Concord Monitor, July 25, 2012)
