44.) Jeromesville Sycamore Festival – October 1, 2016

*********************************************

*********************************************

In the village of Jeromesville (originally spelled Jeromeville)…

…the Jeromesville Sycamore Festival took place at Dr. Lewis Memorial Park…

…to celebrate the nation’s largest sycamore tree.

To see the tree, you needed to fill out a waiver for a ticket…

…and then take your ticket to board one of the hayride vehicles.

After a two mile ride on road, field and wooded terrain, you were brought here…

…to the nation’s largest sycamore tree…

…where you could photograph the tree…

…photograph yourself with the tree…

…climb on it…

…climb in it…

…pretend you were trapped inside looking out…

…or check out the nearby info station…

…and learn a little more about it.

Then, once you were done, you could return back…

…get yourself a hot meal (with musical entertainment during certain hours)…

…some camp donuts from Boy Scout Troop 521…

…(which were fried up here and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar)…

…and/or some popcorn from Pack 551.

There were also some alpacas on display for the animal lovers (Gaelic Glen)…

…and they were as cute as ever.
