Friday late afternoon I went to the high school to help the band boosters set up for concessions. It was so good to see everybody; it felt like old times!
After we had our coffee, we made our way to the Fall Festival. It was pretty cool to wander around the Twin City's downtown area; it's not someplace I go to on a regular basis. One of the stores that I definitely want to go back into:
We made our way through the vendors, and had to stop for the "Tractor Parade":
There was a blacksmith demonstration:
Fall decorations were in abundance:
And there was even a pink tractor:
Since she was a volunteer, she was given free tickets to the concert venue for the weekend. Let me tell ya, the organizers did a great job with the music! The headliner on Friday night was Blues Traveler, Saturday night was Kix Brooks & Lynyrd Skynyrd, and last night was Brett Eldridge & Rascal Flatts. They weren't planning on going to Saturday & Sunday nights, so she asked if we wanted them. CH & I went to the Skynyrd concert, and MS & his g'friend took the tickets for last night. I was amazed at how many people were at the concert! We lucked out and didn't have too much trouble finding somewhere to sit; we were quite a ways away from the stage, but they had 3 jumbo screens set up. I think if we had been any closer, it would've been waaaay too loud! (Guess I'm showing my age now!)
We had a relaxing day on Sunday. I did some reading and just a little bit of laundry. I even managed to get my clothes changed out for colder weather.
So...now it's back to the real world. Fall Break 2013 is over. Thank goodness it's a short week for me: we had an Admin Day today (which is kind of like a day off!), and I'm taking Friday off so I can get things ready for a camping weekend!
