Hay Creek Festival (One Dry Day)
Hay Creek Festival had one sunny day out of three. The grounds had some muddy patches so they did a great job sopping up them up with coincidentally, hay.
The usual cast of period demonstrations were present with some new ones and a few missing regulars, but overall it seemed bigger and better then ever. I liked the glass blowers, saw mill, iron master store, civil war encampment, antique tractors and cars.
The food is a big draw and dozen's of organizations and 100's of volunteers were cheerfully dishing out their homemade specialties. I happily left with two quarts of wood fired black kettle soups.
Plenty to do for kids too with strategically placed learning stations.
Still a can't miss event. The kid-oriented Apple Festival is coming October 10, 2009, 7A-3P.
