This yearly event is a mecca for bluegrass lovers because that is the featured attraction for the weekend. BUT a tractor pull, vintage car show, softball tournament, and demolition derby are other crowd favorites. Did I mention flea markets and wonderful food? Carni rides and mud volleyball? How about over 300 campers parked everywhere? Kind of get the idea that we have it all right here in this little town in the northwest corner of our county? Where it's difficult to get a phone signal? And your digital clocks turn back and forth an hour depending exactly on which part of the site you are standing? Dang! It's almost more fun than a person can stand! (That must be why most people bring along chairs to sit down after too much fun!!)
We just took in the music on Saturday night, then pulled a six hour shift selling pop and water for the girls' school on Sunday. After that stint, we all had ants in our pants, so we went off for some serious Festival Fun!
Prizes won after throwing darts at balloons!
The jumpy experience, kind of like bungey jumping only mother friendly!
Ready to launch Tink!
Too Much Fun Mom!
Mud volleyball! Icky but also fun!
Car Show~We take this seriously around these parts!
Love the red!
Tink, the Brave (NOT!)

A good time is being had by all. Now where is the cotton candy?????
One more ride for Bear.
A treat for Tall Guy and me!

A quick rest for the weary!
Whew! We came home and had our own bonfire and s'mores. What a great way to end the day. Not sure if we are going back today. Tall Guy is out cleaning up silage equipment and putting it away, and I have apples cooking on the stove slowly becoming applesauce. So much for a day OFF from work, but then it's all good at the end of the day when you realize what you have accomplished. Hope you are having a great day, and don't forget to end a bit early so Tuesday won't come up and bite you in the tushy!
Stay tuned for more about applesauce and a remodel update later in the week!
