Every midwestern town I know has a heritage festival of some sort. It's nice to know your history, even if it doesn't reach back more than a hundred years or so. My town is no exception.

Our festival has turned into a bit of an outdoor market where you can buy all sorts of things you never knew you needed.

More stuff I didn't need:

After consuming the above, you do not want to ride the below:

The music was great this year. This was a nice booth. He was selling native American CDs and some cheap souvenir flutes. He had a small flute playing along to a CD. I asked if I could take a picture and he reached into a pouch and pulled out this beauty.

Here's an almost all-female jazz band. Good stuff. They played R&B hits in jazz style.

Every town should know its heritage and celebrate it by eating too much and buying junk. :mrgreen:

I almost forgot. It rained and ruined our display. Here's what's used to be a picture of my junior high music class. It's now going to be the cover of the CD we produced this past school year. :D

Wish I had been there! I would have like to have listened to the jazz group and tried out all those whistles.

Looks like a great time Connie! :D Is that funnel cake??? Yummmm! What a beautiful flute he pulled out?!!! I love that you're going to use the picture as the cover of the CD. Great idea. I bet the kids loved it.

Frogs, funnel cakes and flutes -- looks like a real nice day! The turquoise inlay on that Native American flute is nice! Wonder what key it was in? Sure looks big ... seems like it would almost have to be low D or better.
