The Corn Festival


The girls and I went to the Corn Festival today.  It was held at Graue Mill, which was once a working mill and was also was a stop on the Underground Railroad.  The original mill, water wheel and miller's home are all still there and are now a museum.


It was a sweet, old-fashioned celebration.  The girls played along with the musicians. 



They tried out the stilts, picked out a homemade cherry pie and took exactly one bit of the roasted corn.  Hey, at least they tried it!  I thought it was fabulous and ate every last bite. 


They also got to use the fire department's hose to put out a pretend fire.



It was a fun afternoon.
