World Chicken Festival Washout

Well, this year the World Chicken Frestrival was pretty much a washout as far as my family is concerned. Mary Jane and her mother-in-law, Jackie, went for the first time. Thursday while we were traveling was fine. The weather was great. The same thing for Friday. It was beautiful. Then came Saturday morning. We all got ready for the parade and went to the festival site only to be told that the parade had been cancled because of the rain. So, we went to Woddy's for his pig roast, had a good time, and then came back to the festival later that afternoon. We were there for less than an hour when the day's festivities were called off because of an impending storm. We left and went back to our motel and did not return to the Chicken Festival. Here are several photos that were taken during our time there.

Mary Jane and Jackie inside the tent at the Sanders Stage waiting for the Colonel Sanders Look-Alike Contest to begin. It didn't, at least not that day. Don't know if they had it on Sunday.

One of the displayers at the festival was Windstream which, I believe, is some sort of telephone of communications company. Their bossman wanted a picture of me with the ladies. I obliged.
