Friday late afternoon I went to the high school to help the band boosters set up for concessions. It was so good to see everybody; it felt like old times!
After we had our coffee, we made our way to the Fall Festival. It was pretty cool to wander around the Twin City's downtown area; it's not someplace I go to on a regular basis. One of the stores that I definitely want to go back into:
We made our way through the vendors, and had to stop for the "Tractor Parade":
There was a blacksmith demonstration:
Fall decorations were in abundance:
And there was even a pink tractor:
Since she was a volunteer, she was given free tickets to the concert venue for the weekend. Let me tell ya, the organizers did a great job with the music! The headliner on Friday night was Blues Traveler, Saturday night was Kix Brooks & Lynyrd Skynyrd, and last night was Brett Eldridge & Rascal Flatts. They weren't planning on going to Saturday & Sunday nights, so she asked if we wanted them. CH & I went to the Skynyrd concert, and MS & his g'friend took the tickets for last night. I was amazed at how many people were at the concert! We lucked out and didn't have too much trouble finding somewhere to sit; we were quite a ways away from the stage, but they had 3 jumbo screens set up. I think if we had been any closer, it would've been waaaay too loud! (Guess I'm showing my age now!)
We had a relaxing day on Sunday. I did some reading and just a little bit of laundry. I even managed to get my clothes changed out for colder weather.
So...now it's back to the real world. Fall Break 2013 is over. Thank goodness it's a short week for me: we had an Admin Day today (which is kind of like a day off!), and I'm taking Friday off so I can get things ready for a camping weekend!
The festival sounds like my cup of tea! Your sister is a basket weaver? SO cool! The concerts sound amazing...I like all the performers you've listed.ReplyDelete
You had a GREAT weekend! I'm finding that the weekends go way too quickly, and as the kids get older, the weekends get busier and busier. I'm worn out from them and look forward to the slower paced week days at times ;)ReplyDelete
I love Fall Festival art work... so beautiful... usually expensive :)ReplyDelete
I need to do laundry... BAD!
Wow....what a fun time you had! The festival looks like it was a great one and the concert sounds wonderful.ReplyDelete
Have fun camping.
Your sister does great work with that basket; wow! Seems like a win-win situation to help out at the festival, gets you out among people, helping a good cause, and then you get concert tickets. I definitely think it would be a good thing to do next year too!ReplyDelete
