All Things Cow


Our small town festival was a big hit this weekend.  Full of crafts, food, and fun, it is an event people look forward to each year.  


Annie, the fiberglass cow, dispenses flavored drinks.  Fifty cents lets you milk her for your choice of flavors.  A bargain!  



People come from all over and drive their best to attend high school reunions, ham breakfasts, and concerts.  


Local craftsman sell their wares and I admit that I have a checkerboard from this display.  Mine came with regular pennies, and wheat pennies, set in cherry, for the checkers.  My son had a successful weekend with his handmade knives, selling all but one.  



Saturday afternoon brought the parade before we had a small shower.  


The tractors were a big hit and this little fellow was serious about his driving.  


The mules are always a favorite of mine.  These two belong to one of the nicest gentleman you will ever meet.  




My Dad was here for his 50th high school reunion and we had a good visit.  Between all the eating, fellowship, and festivities, I think I need a day to recover.

  5. Milking that cow would be a lot of fun, I imagine. Small town festivals are so much fun, there's really nothing like it. I think I may go to the Christmas ones this year.

  7. That looks like SO much fun. I think I might skip milking my own drink; I'm kinda spoiled!! Your dad's 50th reunion? How cool is that?!

  10. What a fantastic fair and those checkerboards are works of art! I wish you'd have shown a photo of your son's knives! I remember a friend of mine did fantastical etchings on handmade knives for a guy. I still wish I'd bought one. Have a good rest. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  11. Small towns are the best in my opinion. Where else would you find a fiberglass cow to dispense drinks?
    Looks like a very fun day.

  20. Absolutely brilliant Michelle. I can tell this is a much loved and anticipated event in your community. As much as I'm a city gal we do enjoy very much heading out to country events, such a good atmosphere.

  25. Hi Michelle, The Small Town Festival looks great and thanks for sharing all the photos. I still remember when my grandfather gave me a ride on his tractor down on the farm when I was just a kid about as old as one of those in your photos. Those things will stick with you forever. Looks like everyone had fun at the Festival. Thank you for your very kind comment on my post about the Alaska cruise. I do think you and your family would love a cruise up to Alaska and if I can answer any questions feel free to email me at jrcoast at gmail dot com Have a great week ahead!
