Well this was a very busy weekend and I
was worn out Sunday. Two Festivals in a
row is getting harder as I am getting older,
but we had a great time. The weather was
wonderful with temps in the 80’s and some
The trees are getting so pretty here in Ohio
now and they were the perfect background for
the Fall Festivals.
Friday my daughter and I attended the 40th
year anniversary of the Bob Evans Festival
at Rio Grande, Ohio.
The crowds were fewer this year and so were
some of the displays. There were fewer craft
booths and I missed the county displays that
were usually made for the event. Last year
all of the counties in Ohio decorated hats

The quilt barn usually has quilting demonstrations
and beautiful quilts every year.
This year quilts which were displayed inside
were very pretty but to be honest I have saw

did smell wonderful.
There were different groups singing throughout
the day to get your foot stomping. LOL!

ones were absent this year. Maybe they were in
Waynesville for the Sauerkraut Festival since both

to do with the crowds of people. I never saw so
many craft booths or people at a Festival unless
it was at our local Pumpkin Show.
I hope you all had a beautiful weekend.
I am off to plant some Alliums I picked up so
