Cow Days

This weekend was Smalltownland's annual pause to celebrate all things cow and community related.  


Our Cow Days Festival brings in different types of craft vendors, 



as well as artistic displays of all kinds.  



Our football team played in the, "Cow Bowl", on Friday night with a great victory.  



Secret Agent Farmer Man and our trusty Border Collie, Rainy, sold raffle tickets for this classic flat bottomed river boat.  Built by SAFM himself, as well as some of the trap shooters.  




The most classic attraction of our small town festival is Annie the cow.  



For fifty cents you can milk her and get a cup of kool aid.  




A kid's dream.......

  8. I was just going to type exactly what Linda E typed! The cow is too funny!! Craft fairs and festivals are always great fun! How cool that the handmade flat-bottomed boat was raffled off. I would have had trouble letting it go...

  11. Annie the cow is no doubt the winner . . . I wonder how confused children there will be . . . "Where's test sweet "pink"milk?"

  12. The funny thing is, those indoor photos look so much like my own hometown ballroom while a quilt show is going on. I'm so glad your little town is so vibrant!

  16. Hi Michelle, a really enjoyable post, and just imagine - a cow who produces a fizzy drink, haha. Sounds like a fun day out. And such talented people about.
    In answer to your question about steampunk headquarters. Yes you can go in It is a museum of sorts but on the day we just looked from the outside. Someone came out and fired up the engine while we were there and smoke and fire belched out of the top along with the steam train noises. Quite impressive. I'd like to do a day trip just to go inside sometime.

  21. That looks looks like a huge amount of fun. BUT - do kids really dream about milking cows?
