A city festival? I've always thought of it that way. But in truth, it is the fundraiser for the local volunteer fire department. There was a parade, games for the kids, "Little Miss" contest (for girls 6-7 years old), BINGO, a food court, a beer garden, evening music, and a TON of people. Our little town more than doubles in population for the day.
We watched the parade. Sid and Duchess chose to go inside and avoid the noise. My Jenny, she just sat on the step - unimpressed.
Instead of hanging with the crowds in the park; we left town to pick up a box of peaches that arrived this morning and to pick up fresh sweet corn. The season looks like it may be a short one this year.
