And another reason I love October is because of the county fair. Here are just a few photos I took as this years "Dixie Classice Fair". Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them.
Sign over the stadium where the special attractions are held, such as the tractor pull and any big name musical stars or groups.
There's always plenty of Folk Music. It was drizzling rain but G and I sat under our umbrellas and listened for a while all the same.
This man was giving demos on 4 harnes weaving. I would really like to learn weaving and spinning.
He said it took him a long hard day to string the loom but then he could produce many rugs before his wrap threads ran out. The rugs are about the size of a bathroom rug and take him about 1.5 hrs to make. They were very resonably priced at $30 - $35 each.
These staues were carved with a chain saw, isn't the detail amazing.
While J and M enjoyed the mid-way G and I watched the tractor pull. I like the old rusty tractors the best because they look so much more real to me. They look as if they are really used to plow farm land.
But the fancy souped up tractors where cool as well. Although they are VERY loud. BTW I noticed that they didn't actually pull as well as the regular tractors.
I found these card sculptures to be amazing. Can you imagine the time it took not to mention how steady your hand needs to be.
For some reason this reminds me of Phylis Diller.
