Teapot lovers of all ages, far and near, are getting ready to celebrate the “World’s Largest Teapot” on August 12. Chairman of the event, Susan Hineman, is shown with a helper who shares her appreciation for the teapot that has made Chester a stop for tourists wanting to have their photo taken with the teapot. The day’s festivities will open with a welcome from Mayor Ed Wedgewood at 10 a.m. and continue until 4 p.m. Replica teapots will be featured as well as teapot ornaments and t-shirts. Vendors will include food and artisan wares.
