Festival Time


This weekend took us to a neighboring county/town not too far away from our own farmette.  Hence, how we were, "semi-lost", on Saturday.  




It is fall festival season here in Kentucky and this town had it going in full swing.  




Even the dogs attended.....one I met was named, "Nibbler".  


An umbrella hat could be had for a buck, or two.  Good thing to have, with the unseasonably hot, fall weather.  




The mascot/theme of this festival is a pig and pigs are found everywhere, from porches, sidewalks, and businesses, to right on main street....in the inflatable variety.  




I did have a brief lunch of Greek themed food.  Delicious!  



The real reason for stopping in.....well, our son was selling his handcrafted knives.  


After a few hours he had sold all but three of his collection.  The other three...well, they sold by word of mouth, by the end of the day.   He is a busy, young man.  Going to college, working, and having a small business keeps his time occupied. 

 He is very talented and we are proud of him.

  14. I have a friend who used to sell his handcrafted wood toys and other articles all up and down the east coast at these fall festivals. Great fun, but very tiring, he said. Our fall festival season won't start until late October and even then, as you know, it may be uncomfortably warm.

  15. Some lovely pictures! I love the cute dog :) That "umbrella-hat" would be something to have this rainy autumn...
    Have a great and beautiful day!

  22. A fun post and we have always enjoyed local fairs and when living in VA we made it a point to go to quite a few. We also sold some of own creations, photo cards for me and wood turnings for Grenville and we know how great a feeling it can be to sell out -- congrats to your son on his successful sales. And, that Greek treat looked wonderful too. We'll be going to an all day music festival and an agricultural fair this weekend!
