Hot, steamy, mosquitoes the size of chickens, RAIN, low traffic, weird vendor placements and a fly infestation.
That was the faire. The end.
Well, that was how I saw it because that's what stood out the most...
Oh and one more thing. It's kind of good news. No, I kid. It's HUGE NEWS.
THE CITY OF TEXARKANA WANTS TO SPONSOR THE FAIRE NEXT YEAR!!!
You know what that means? No more begging for money and free entertainment, no more sleepless nights wondering how I'm going to pay for something so simple as bottled water for the entertainers. We'll be in a new and BETTER location! Now we will be recognized as an official tourist attraction and have the same treatment, attendance, promotions and advertisements as any major festival in the area!
And now for your viewing pleasure, here are a few photos of the faire. There are so many photos I want to share with you so I compiled a few into multiple collages so your computer doesn't explode trying load this post.
Enjoy! More to come soon!
My favorite costumes of the faire. A "Knight Princess" and "Viking Fairy"! Completely original costumes these girls put together themselves.
...and it rained Saturday... A LOT.
River and daddy!!
And lastly- an impromptu chicken balance belly dance!
I'll try not to flood your blog feed with posts about the faire this week but I would like to share a few more pics with you all. Stay tuned!
