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
