Our small town celebrates the rivers that flow through the center of town each summer. The celebration is called Water Fest. A carnival opens in the large parking lots near the skateboard park. The large park, which includes a really small zoo, is the location for a huge craft fair. On the last night of the celebration, a fireworks show happens a another park. We always watch the fireworks from our front yard.
The children all enjoy spending a day at the carnival wearing their unlimited-ride wrist bands. This year, I took Kate, Joe, Madelyn, Paige, and Allie to the carnival. The temperature was hot and sticky. We stayed for 2 hours and then returned home to cool off. After drinks and a snack, Joe and Madelyn returned to the carnival with Paige and Allie for another hour and a half.
Amy spent two days at her booth at the craft show. She did really well and sold quite a few items. Her jewelry is unique and she received a ton of favorable comments.
