This year was our 15th year attending the Atwood Fall Fest here in Ohio held on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of October and this year we were treated to rain, hail and sunshine on 2 of the 3 days. Of course the 3rd day (sunday) is the shortest day and we didn’t have anything but sunshine.
We have always taken our travel trailer and just stayed from Thursday evening until Sunday when the show is over but this year we made it a full week of camping and had ample time to set up our display in the 10×20 tent that is on the same lot as our camper. Straw is a must have because of the potential rain and as well it lends a country atmosphere.
Surprisingly and despite the rain and hail we still had a very successful show. By Sunday morning I was in fear that I may not have enough product for an already paid for 1 day show on the 18th.
Attached are a few pictures of the set up at the show, despite the inclement weather, we still had fun because most of the neighbors have been attending as long as we have been but maybe the best part is that the vendor directly to my left makes home made ice cream and he insists that I sample more than several of his new batches. It’s pretty rough sometimes but I manage to get thru it. lol

Nice display and plenty of fine looking offerings for sale, you’ve been busy in the shop. Glad it turned out so successful for you.

Very nice setup. I had a tent like that a few years ago. Really nice.

Wow Dick, you have been a very busy guy. I hope that you sold enough to make the trip worthwhile, but still have enough to offer for the upcoming show. Once you get that Ringmaster going you will be amazed at how quickly you can add product for your shows. You have a fantastic set up.

My wife bought a jar of rub from your wife that we used on our ribeye steaks while camping this week. Pretty hard to beat a steak cooked over a wood fire.
