Spring Planting Festival May 3 & 4, 2009
May 20, 2009 by Emilee Gettle
The spring planting festival was a huge success despite very damp conditions on Sunday. Thousands of visitors tramped through very muddy ground to get to the huge event we had this year. Most everyone seemed in good spirits despite the weather. Plan now to come to our monthly events, held the first Sunday of each month. Here are a few snapshots of the big spring festival…
Thousands of varieties of plants at the spring festival!
Visitors enjoyed hundreds of reenactors, musicians and vendors at the Spring Planting Festival.
Thousands crowded our streets to purchase plants and handmade crafts.
Visitors filled our new "historic" Chinese restaurant to capacity both days of our Spring Planting Festival. Food was served by donation. Sitting in the foreground is Wayne Horsburgh, Australia's Country Performer, eating with Grandpa Tabuchi.
Yodeling legend Sourdough Slim performed along with dozens of other musicians.
Children and adults alike enjoyed our many varieites of historic birds and animals.
