The Calendar Was Marked!

The calendar gets marked in September for the 3rd Saturday in October… k16018759

It is time for the Glendale Crossing Festival…

A small town South of Louisville where we live… About an hour’s drive…

We meet with my daughter-in-law, her Mom, Granddaughter, friends … Anyone who wants to go!…

I say, “My daughter-in-law is on a mission!”…

She just loves this Festival and wouldn’t miss it for about anything…

I have!…

Like the last couple of years when it has been so rainy x75257767 … muddy… cold…

but, not her!…

Her Mom is right by her side…

and my youngest granddaughter has gotten the bug too…

They are the “shoppers!”  u21313313

My son says, “I can’t wait to see what rusty star  k3037075… grapevine something  k8911574 … painted blocks of wood that looks like Pumpkins or Santas!… that my Melanie will bring home!”…

We eat something while we are there…

could be fudge… a hot dog… corn on the cob… beans/cornbread…

Pretty much anything… but… we just snack…

because we eat somewhere afterwards on the way home… where we can sit down… take a breath… and chill!…

My friend and I sampled every flavor of coffee at a both… “FREE SAMPLES“… all kinds of vegetable and fruit dips…

We were pretty full after that!…

I heard fried pies k18227230  mentioned… fresh lemonadekettle corn… chili…

We have decided 4 things from our Festival experience…

Although we love it…

  1. More sitting areas… picnc2_c
  2. More bathrooms…  k9114061
  3. More trash cans…tc01p022
  4. and more than one day It is huge… and unable to actually take in everything…

The parade starts early… meandering through this small town from one end to the other…

Of course the “locals” are in it…

from police… fire department… residents… school kids… all kinds of tractors (farming area)… cars cruising… politicians abound…
