So Sad.

Well we were so excited to head to the dairy fest today! I hope some of you got to go and enjoy, I would love to hear experiences if so! How was it? Get any goodies?
Well we headed out about 2:30 for the 45 min drive to the dairy fest. We never got in. We waited in traffic on the highway for 45 mins! Then turned around a mile away since the kids had to pee. So no dairy fest for me 👿
Now as we’re heading home from this disappointing event I’m planning our next weekend event.
So here’s the next big cheap event in our area. The Franklinton Fair is one of the last free fairs in the country. If you get in the gate parking is free, or local people sell their yards for parking for between 5 and 10 dollars per car. Once you get in they have rides, which you have to pay to ride of course, free things include the antique village with demonstrations, concerts, petting zoo, produce and animal prizes and local vendors showcasing their items.
I can vouch for this event, I’ve gone several times and have had no problem getting parking. There will be traffic, plan on an extra hour, but the fair is huge, with lots of free stuff to enjoy!

Back for the Weekend

Ok so I’m back. Like many stay at home moms (SAHM) I only get a semi-sorta break when my hubs is home on the weekend. By that I mean I get to go to the grocery store without kids! Woot woot, lol. But this weekend there is another fun, free family event we’re planning on going to, yay!

The annual dairy fest is held about an hour from our town, so we are going of course. According to their website there’s a lot of fun stuff to look forward to! Some of the things included are; a pumpkin patch, wagon rides, a sorghum maze and tours of the dairy barn and there’s so much more! The fest this year is on Sat, Oct 3 from 2:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Free, entry! Free tours! Free parking! Concessions start at just $1 and only go to $6. Talk about a cheap, fun way to entertain kids for an aftrenoon. Oh and did I mention, the weather is supposed to be a high of 78 and sunny! Double win!

Let’s go meet some cows 😀
