I finished my huge festival weekend in the town of Centerburg…

…carefully parking in the saturated parking lot…

…walking toward the street…

…and finding a tiny bridge…

…that led me here…

…to the Oldtime Farming Festival.

As I entered the grounds…

…vendors sold mums…

…fudge…

…bird houses…

…dog breed shirts…

…and tons of various crafts…

…while nearby displays showcased impressive crops…

…Native American regional history…

…area history…

…and a history of local farms…

…neatly broken up by family.

I headed around the back to find a child’s wonderland…

…by means of balloon animals….

…playgrounds…

…kids’ games…

…tractor pulling…

…critters to pet…

…critters to ride…

…critters to watch perform obstacles…

…and critters to win in a raffle.

Adults, meanwhile, when not in the Euchre tournament…

…were way in the back with the farming equipment…

…getting close-up looks…

…watching demonstrations from a safe distance…

…taking in the sounds and motions…

…and just enjoying the vast collection of machinery.

It was quite a collection of things to see and do and I was a little relieved by the time I found myself here…

…in a large eating area…

…where local organizations sold pork chop dinners (Exchange Club)…

…chicken barbeque (United Methodist)…

…and plenty of pie (Church of Christ).

I ended up with a piece of raisin pie…

…while listening to the McManaway Family Quartet.

And if I had stayed a little longer…

…I could have been entertained by the King himself (EAB Entertainment).
