Festival City USA" we see all kinds of interesting festivals. There is the Renaissance Festival, the Children's Storybook Festival, Skyfest, the ever famous Shakespeare Festival, all kinds of music festivals - we even call our Parade of Homes the Festival of Homes now. But today we participated in one that has become my favorite - the Livestock & Heritage Festival - or the sheep-fest.
We got up and packed the kids into town for the parade which was basically farm equipment, horses, wagons, a BUNCH of the sheep-herder's trailers that they live in and you guessed it - SHEEP. The sheep paraded right down main street. The whole time I just laughed and laughed - I love that we live in a cute little town that celebrates all kinds of parts of our lives. So next time I complain that there is nothing to do in our sleepy old town - remind me of the sheep parade and I'm sure to at least crack a small smile.
