Another city picnic come and gone!

This weekend was our yearly city picnic. Thought I would share some pictures and what goes on around here. Lots of people come into town just for this! It was 127 years for the picnic! Looking north on Main Street.
This is looking south on Main Street from our churches parking lot.
I kinda think this ride looks fun!
Here are what goes on:
Thursday
Frog jumping contest, tennis shoe toss and sidewalk chalk art. Then a balloon toss followed by concerts by local and regional acts. In the evening they have the rides and such going. Plus our Municipal band, last years talent winner and the talent contest.
Friday
Turtle races, hula hoop contest, water balloon toss and concerts. In the evening the rides open, our Municipal band, concert by a regional artist and a magic act.
Saturday
A run to benefit St. Judes hospital,greased pig contest, baby contest, golf cart race, lip sync contest and concerts by various artists. Rides in the evening, music from the Municipal band, nite life and picnic committee introduction and drawing.
So there ya have it! Our good old fashioned picnic! Good to see it come every year but I am also glad to get back to things being a bit less busy with the extra folks in town.

Sounds like a great old-fashioned time! It's neat that your town is still small enough to have such a event.

Hi! there Michelle.
Just been catching up on your posts. Fair looks fun, thanks for taking us along and giving us a flavour of your town.
I was so thrilled to see a proper picture of you at last. I hate having my photo taken too.
Beautiful embroidery as usual. You are truly gifted. Blessings. Barbara
