The 44th annual Corn and Apple Festival in our hometown of Morden has come to an end.
This event takes place during the last full weekend in August.
The activities start on Friday at noon and end Sunday at about 6PM.
There are activities for all ages and tastes.
Of course face painting is a big one,especially for our Granddaughter,Kai.I think she is the cutest butterfly around.
After the face painting it was on to the rides.
All the rest of my pictures were taken on Sunday,
therefore the rides were not in operation.
They are only allowed to start until noon,so as not to interfere with the downtown worship service.
As you can see the sky was grey this morning,but all events went on as planned.
The Ferris Wheel looks pretty,but I prefer to watch it from on the street.
This slide is very popular with the kids.
Depending on the weight,a person can travel quite fast on the way down,again,not for me.
This fellow has been at the festival for many years.He takes his spot at the center of the street,and before long has children lining up to get their balloon creation.
I must say that he makes some very intricate designs.
I bet he gets real tired standing on those tall 'legs'.
When he walks he actually is really good,looking almost natural.
For Jake and me the big event is the Sunday morning church service.People from all the different churches attend.
Most of the local churches don't have a service on this day,but encourage the people to come here.
This year we had some local talent,like this quartet.
These are the Glencross Quartet.
We have known most of these fellows for many years.
They sing well and give a good gospel message in song.
Our special guests this year were Mike and Lynda Randle.
Mike gave the morning message and blessed our hearts
with God's Word.
Lynda has sung on the Gaither Homecoming shows.
She has a powerful voice and a great testimony.
These pictures are not great for quality,but they do give you a glimpse into our festival.
I will be doing another post about this,in a day or two.
