Well, we just returned from several hours at our local "LANESVILLE HERITAGE DAYS"
Festival. Hot and Humid, but lots of Sun so as long as you kept downing the water things were fine. I did not carry my camera as it was a bit rough (the grounds) so I used my walking stick to help keep me vertical.
We each enjoyed a Pork Chop Sandwich and shared some Onion Rings and a Fish Fry Sandwich (Fried Cod on Rye Bread) $3 per item for a good lunch investment of $12 total. We watched the Apple Butter making demo. Thank God for crock-pots, I can't imagine having the patience to tend that hanging kettle of Apples for over 24 hours over a wood fire!!
Then we enjoyed the parade of Steam equipment. The tractors with a two man crew, looking like locomotives in the field huffed and puffed around the field. There were about 25 of them running and an equal number on static display. Some ran other equipment using long power transfer belts from PTO's. At One O'Clock they collectivly sounded their Whistles/Horns and really got everyone's attention!
Lots of craft and food booths and a very nice concert in the park by a local Dulcimer Society. It was mellow enough , even in the hub-bub of the firground to lull me to a nap after our fine lunch !!
Sorry I did not get photos. They would have been dandy. But hauling my camera around was not part of the plan today. Tonight our ears will pick up the noise of the MAJOR Tractor Pull...even though we live 3 miles from the fairground!
They anticipated about 25,000 visitors today (to our village of 900). From the look of the long lines of Bikes parked at Hogs Tavern on Main St, I would guess a large percentage came by Motorcycle!
