Sorry I missed you on Saturday. After 3 hours in that trailer I was ready to get out! Funny the lady there didn't know me though. Anyway, I'm glad you had a good time. Here's some pictures:
My view from inside the info trailer. The big white tent in the back is the cheese tent. The big building on the right is the courthouse:
The line for deep fried cheese curds. It actually got much longer than this at some times. The main stage is to the left of the tent, which is what the people in lawn chairs are watching:
Cheese Days isn't just about the cheese, it's also about the Swiss heritage of the cheesemakers in Green County. Here is Del Heins, a fixture at Cheese Days, doing what he does best:
Besides cheese, the Swiss are also known for their sausage. Here is a Swiss Shublig, with sauerkraut and potato salad, washed down with a Berghoff Oktoberfest:
Berghoff & Blues Festival runs in conjunction with Cheese Days. The building in this picture is the back side of the Huber brewery. To the left is the blues tent, to the right is the Lions Club food stand selling my favorite cheese curds, and in the middle are the tappers of Berghoff and Huber beer. Does life get any better than this?
Needless to say, I had a great time this weekend. Sorry I didn't meet up with any other Roadfooders. Maybe in 2008!
