It turned out to be one of the best and was enjoyed by many! We had a big crowd, they estimated over 5,000 during the 2 day festival. Many who attended started out with a country breakfast, then stayed and enjoyed the day. Their day may have included, shopping at the many arts and crafts vendors and the country store, listening to Grandma stories about Cane Hill, watching history unfold before their eyes by the WCHS Heritage School students, watching the parade, watching how to make sorghum molasses, lye soap and hominy. Or watching the Wool and Wood Spinners and the Dogwood Lace Guild ladies, a visit to the old Cane Hill museum and its future home. Or maybe a visit to the petting zoo and a camel ride, that's right, a camel ride. Or maybe just sitting, relaxing and listening to the music and having a bean dinner or food from one of the many food vendors. There was definitely something for everyone to enjoy! See you all next year!
Just want to thank all of our volunteers, for their many hours of hard work, this wouldn't have happened without them! They did everything from make prepare and breakfast, lunch, sorghum, hominy, apple butter, they helped with the parade, parking, the sound system, setting up, making a quilt to raffle, the quilt show, the country store, the museum, the children's games and the list goes on.
