What I like to call " out in the boonies" movies have always caught my eye. Ones like Sweet Home Alambma or Doc Hollywood. The reason they catch my eye is the small town fairs or festivals the movie portrays.
Our little town of 800 has one such festival celebrating the Bean. Yup you heard right, the bean. For the past 49 years our town has put on the Bean Festival. Now I've taken this festival and all it has to offer for granted until this year and decided to look at it thru fresh eyes and I can tell you I truly had a wonderful time.
Friday night begins with a classic car cruise night and fireworks display. We didn't count but I heard over 200 cars participated, and the fireworks were quite impressive!
Our morning began bright and early! Living close to the action we can hear set- up begin around 6:30 am . The streets are closed and turned into a market where I purchased a couple of things.
The car show is the second largest in Ontario. I found myself being drawn to the classics where as Roger can't resist the muscle car.
We think something like this would be perfect to pull our 1965 trailer. Its on our one day when we when the lottery wish list.
I leave you with a festival/ fair favourite of mine. The Kettle Corn Recipe I tried this easy make any time recipie and it was pure deliousousness. :)
