The Maumee is shown above, and the Auglaize is shown below. I live about a mile downstream on the Auglaize.
There were a lot of vendor tents! Let's see what they have for sale. Click on any pic to see it bigger.
Here someone made paintings on the back of old windows. Very colorful.
And the rocks and benches below were very cool. I wish I had money to buy several. You could put candles or small potted plants in the carved out hollows in the sandstone rocks. I thought the benches would look great in my yard so that I could gaze out over the river. Maybe next year.
Here is another view of the festival.
Some very cool pottery in the booth below. I almost bought this adorable pottery bowl for monkey bread, but it was too small for my household! I hope its not considered mean for me to post this pic with people's butts, but dang it, they saw I had a camera and still walked in front of me!
You can get a glimpse of the old library in the background.
They had a band perform called Siberian Solstice. They did cover songs from Trans-Siberian Orchestra and they were pretty good. I have actually seen Trans-Siberian Orchestra and if you ever get the chance to go, you should definitely do it because they give the best show EVER! This cover band was still pretty enjoyable and they were free, lol. My son enjoyed this a lot. The sunshine in this pic is deceiving. Within a half hour it was pouring, then it cleared right up and the sun came out again!
Here is a close up. They were only $8 a piece. My son teased me about my cup-on-a-stick and said I could make one cheaper. I told him that by the time I bought the cup, even on sale, and the glue gun and the glue, and the tools to put the rod that stands it in the ground, plus the rod, plus the post, that I would be well out more than just the $8 I spent, lol.
And here he is, happy because we are leaving. Hurry up, Mom!
The town had a flood this past January. Hard to believe now, the the river was up to the top of that railing and they had to sandbag around the library. Still, over 80 homes and businesses in the area had flood damage.
And here I am, next to the river, smiling because I had fun and I got my cup-on-a-stick bird feeder.
I also found some pretty jewelry at the art fair for $33 for the whole set. I wear lots of browns and these will work with several outfits. Plus you can use the stone on either necklace and even intertwine them if you like. I limited myself to spening $40 and I almost did that...well if you don't count the four raffles I entered and the food tent, lol. Oh well, it was all for very good causes. Oh, and I got invited to join the Historic Homes club, even though I don't have an old house. Sounds like fun, but they have meetings on the one night a week that I work really late.
I'm off to enjoy what sunshine is left for the day!
