I'm sorry you were disappointed. We previewed the Garden Rhapsodies Tour the weekend before with a Home story and cover photograph (link). We did it then to give people time to plan for the event, since Home comes out on Saturdays and it was a Saturday event. We did include information in last Saturday's Home about the tour in a box with Mary Jo Buza's column, but in retrospect, we should have done a short item reminding people of that day's tour, and referring them to the previous week's story, which is still posted on our Web site. As for the fair schedule, I don't think we've ever been able to run the fair's full schedule in the newspaper. That's because it's very large -- even listing one day's events and entertainment options isn't really possible because of its size. While that makes it difficult for the newspaper, it means fairgoers will have a lot of things to choose from.
You can still plan your trip to the fair by checking out the searchable fair schedule here.
