October 20, was the Annual Goat Day in Blountstown. They said we had record attendance of close to 5,000 people!! It was a gorgeous day for the community to be out!
Zoo World brought an exhibit of animals to "show n tell". Spider Man got in on the action! :) I am not sure what this was but it sure looked like a chinchilla! :)
The kids look forward to pony rides each year, but I think will be the last year they ride. Only one of the horses was big enough for their weight.
Cute goat dressed up....asking you to vote for Crawford, for Clerk of Court! :)
This was the stand we chose for lunch and the stand that ripped us off!! YIKES! We should have asked prices, but we really didn't expect it to be so bad! The kids got alligator on a stick, I got chicken on a stick and Dan got a Gyro. They were $8 a piece, a little much but kind of expected.....but then Dan and I both got a lemonade....and they were $5 a PIECE!!! $10 for drink!!! :O Never again! (We could have ate at a nice restaurant for that price!!) We'll take our own drink next time and eat at the Pioneer Settlement across the bridge. It was cheaper and a more balanced meal. Chalk this one up to experience!
Going through the woods to the Pioneer Village.....
A stand with artifacts from the 1800's.
Beginning of an antique tractor show.
And that's it....I wasn't much in a picture taking mood that day! :P
We did have a good time though and got to see lots of friends! :)
This is one event we look forward to every year even though the kids feel too old to join in the greased pig chase or the coin dig like they used to when they were younger! :)
