Fall Fest's Fall Festival in THE Valley this weekend. You can just FEEL the excitement.

Yesterday was Movie Day, I spent the afternoon down at Fritz's, talkin' with some of my neighbors, laughin' with the bartender watchin' a couple of movies. All anyone was really talking about was Fall Fest.

The carnival is just about finished setting up at the Middle School behind my house. There will be a parade, street dance, fireworks. Fritz's is having a Pig Roast - man that's some good eatin' there.....

But alas, I will miss most of it. Saturday I'll be about 3 hours south of here, WORKING a carnival. A Carnival of Savings. Me, Ronald McDonald and lord knows HOW many kids (who tend to have parents there - hence MY presence) will be, well, I have no idea. I just have 300 stuffed bears and a couple hundred pens to hand out. All I really know is I'll be leaving Paradise at 6:00 Saturday morning and MIGHT make it home in time for the fireworks that night.

This is one of the things I love about small town middle America. These festivals. Hopefully next year I'll be around for it.

I'll be thinking of you on my way up to Green Bay. Actually if I was home this weekend I'd probably try to head down to Fall Fest.

Our town has a Summer festival every year complete with fireworks (that we can watch from our yard, yea).

We love it, it has a car show, food, games, food, craft booths, food, you get the idea, food.

How about Sunday? Thinking about taking the granddaughter to the carnival and parade.

I miss the small town festivals, myself. Ah, memories...
