Bridge Street Summer Fest

They do this every year on the first weekend of August — close off Main Street for displays and vendors. Usually the temperature is rather torrid, but this year, it was cool enough for long pants and heavier shorts. Until later in the morning that is; by then I was getting a little too warm.

Up until this year, it was called the Bridge Street Bazaar, but it's the same by any name. On one hand I don't get the attraction of setting up a half mile of vendors booths, but it is well attended, and, darn it all, I go too.

There were some interesting costumes.






And various musicians.








More costumes.

Summer Fests are great fun no matter what or where or how. Our is called Wilder Fest in honor of the women who later became famous for living in A Little House on the Prairie. Actually she lived briefly here in Spring Valley and much later I taught some of her husband Almonzo's descendent relatives...:)
