In part 2 of the Festival posts,I will show some of the street displays.
To start with I show you a favourite piece of equipment. Where would I be without my Bosch?
I firmly believe that the purchase of one of these machines has been one of the best purchases I have ever made.I used to bake a lot of bread and my hands were getting tired,but with this machine,I can bake all I want and only handle the dough to form the loaves or buns.
This display has been a feature on the street for very many years.
Just a few houses down from me lives a friend who turns used seat belts into bags of all shapes and sizes.
U.S.E.D. is their label.It stands for Unlimited Supplies from Everyones Discards.
I encourage you to click on the link and check out their site.She does ship out her bags as well.
This gentleman creates works of art for the yard,using steel.For today I will just show this one picture,but at some future date I will show you some close-ups of this.
Of course what is a festival without lots of food.
These curly fries seemed to be a hit,as I saw many a plate full of them as I walked down the street.
For those who may not have seen them before,it is one potato sliced into these curls and then deep fried.
Another attraction to my home town is the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre.
The museum is also within two blocks of where I live.This was their display at the festival. They were giving tours to the dig site and generally trying to get the word out about this place.
Everyone needs a coffee now and then.Some,like myself need it often and fairly strong.
Coffee Culture is our newest coffee shop. They serve some mighty tasty coffee and other goodies as well.
Another staple of our festival is a huge Farmer's Market. This is showing just one side of the market.Here you can find all kinds of garden produce,home baking,handmade soaps and much more.
If you were to visit Morden during Festival time,this is what you would see looking down our main street. The little lady in the green hat,just over the front of the car,is Bessie.Bessie is famous for he shish kabobs.There is usually a long line-up of people waiting to by some of these.She also has been at that same spot for as long as I can remember.
I was minding the fort for Steve,so that he could go with Kai to get a balloon animal made.They were not aware of me taking this shot.
The red brick building which is in the left corner of the picture,houses the local art gallery.
Another picture from at Steve's booth. This small vender has been set up at this spot for many years. They have become like friends and serve very tasty burgers.
Behind them,looking through the seats you can see the white and blue striped canopy of the main stage.
Are you done already with this festival? I hope not,as I have at least one more post to share with you.
Sure wish you could have all joined me in person and we could have enjoyed the festival that way.
