NH town to hold fair despite death of girl

August 2, 2011

STEWARTSTOWN, N.H. (AP) - The tiny northern New Hampshire community of Stewartstown is going to go forward with its annual children's fair this weekend despite the unexplained death of 11-year-old Celina Cass.

Patricia Grover of the Stewartstown Day committee says the New Hampshire State Police and the town Board of Selectmen recommended they hold the 2-day event, which will start Friday.

Grover says Stewartstown is "still a scary place for our children. They need something that's on a little happier note for them."

Celina was reported missing from her home July 26. Her body was found Monday. Police haven't said how she died.

Grover says the event will be dedicated to Celina. A queen will be crowned and there will be fireworks. On Saturday there will be a parade, games and other events.
