I really wasn’t sure where to go today. On the one hand, there’s a potato festival in Mantua (1 hr 15 min) that advertises pierogies and potato pancakes.
But, on the other hand, there’s the Skunk Fest. Where else am I going to get that?
And – what’s more – where else will I have to sign a waver to get in!?
“I went to a skunk fest…I had to sign a waver.”
“In case you were sprayed?”
“Or even bitten and clawed.”
“You’re so brave! Sleep with me?”
Ok, so it probably wouldn’t go like that. Maybe more like her thinking that I was an idiot for having to soak myself in a tub of tomato juice. But at least I was entertained…and it’s FREE!
Upon arriving at the park, the place was packed. Really. I almost didn’t think I would get a spot.
And, while driving to find a spot, I passed a couple who each carried their own skunk. Wow.
When I got inside, I passed a guy with a white skunk. I had never seen one before and he allowed me to take a photo.
Among the tables were Pet First Aid, Recognizing Eye Disease in Pets, and even a Pet Communicator/Psychic. I believe I also saw a table where a guy sold his self-published skunk-related children’s books.
Here’s a pic of all the stuff I got from the various tables…
Now, the bigger booklets on the left are from a group that saved farm animals. Chickens, geese, pigs, etc. Here are a saved chicken and a goose. One of the chickens there was saved from a cock fight (not this one, I don’t believe) while this goose was found in a pond. They realized it was domesticated based on its people-friendly attitude and inability to eat on its own.
They also had a goat with them.
For the record, I was NOT sprayed. :-)
