Fall Folklore Fest 2015

18 Oct


Sweet Thing and I attended the Fall Folklore Fest yesterday. They had exhibitors demonstrating some old timey skills such as blacksmithing, broom making, candle making, pottery making, and other pioneer skills.


This was a man plowing a field with a brace of mules. And yes I am old, but this skill was before my time!


This woman was plowing with another brace of mules. That was a hard way to plow, but people have been farming like that for hundreds of years.


You could take a ride on a mule drawn covered wagon.


Some of the kids were having fun shelling corn.


You could also pay $2 and milk a goat. I should have paid my money and tried it, I have never milked a goat! That goat just stood there so nice and easy, she had probably been milked many, many times.


There were square dancers doing their thing.


There was some pickin’ and grinnin’ on the front porch of and old log cabin which had been moved and restored at this museum.


There were big displays of pumpkins and gourds.


They even had a place where you could try your hand at picking cotton. Uh, not for me thanks, I’m trying to stay out of the cotton fields for a while! The weather was perfect for a festival, with a lot of interesting things to see and do. Keep prepping everyone!
