Des Moines Register on the "1st Friday Art Walk" each month in Fairfield:
Fairfield, Ia. - At first glance, the town square to-do looks like every other small-town carnival.
A blues band pumps out tunes from the gazebo. Girl Scouts paint faces at a booth nearby. Kids are blowing bubbles, crafters are selling quilts, and community groups - the Lions, the Kiwanis, the Jaycees - are all here, serving up Sloppy Joes and ice cream and hefty slices of apple pie.
Sunday's Washington Post:
They're Seriously Meditating In Fairfield, Iowa".
It was late afternoon in Fairfield, Iowa, and townsfolk were preparing for the daily ritual.
Marie-Helene Tourenne, who serves up sublime French fare at the Petit Paris restaurant, removed her apron, left the coq au vin to simmer and exited the kitchen. Lonica Halley, co-owner of Natural Selections, a shop offering organic goods, left the store in the care of her assistant. Even Ed Malloy, the amiable silver-haired mayor, ended a meeting and strode out of his conference room.
