One day a year our high school gymnasium is converted into a Children's Festival site.
Today (Saturday) was that day.
Area businesses, schools, and churches set up booths all over the gym.
I took these photos just before the crowds descended.
This was the booth sponsored by our church - - - children could make egg crate caterpillars and sign up to win a handmade quilt.
Most booths offered a game or a craft for children. This green frog face is what kids could make at the library booth.
There was even a desert oasis - - - of sorts.
Once the festival was open for business, the crowds began to descend - - -
And the children got busy crafting their crafts and playing their games.
All kinds of interesting "folk" put in an appearance. Oscar the grouch in his shiny can,
A fairy, a princess, and some kind of imaginary insect creature to name just a few.
Don't forget your veggies and fruit!
I believe a fun day was had by all - - - I only saw a tear or two when crafts didn't "cooperate" with little hands.
