Appalachian Festival

Yesterday we attended the 39th annual Appalachian Festival in Cincinnati, Ohio which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Upon arrival there were yellow school buses as far as the eye could see (which blew my theory about it being quieter on a weekday) however after a couple of hours the place emptied which made it easier to navigate.

I don't fully understand my son's fascination with dead animal body-parts. I felt sorry for the headless bear! Finds included some skins and a coyote tooth. Dd got a prairie dress and apron as part of her birthday present from me which is really pretty and hand made. The appalachian way of life is very interesting and is how most of the traders we met, actually live.
