    It was a good idea, and the response from our community was great! However, the actual FOOD was a big disappointment! for the admission price of $15 one could get two small “sliders” with meat (I’m a vegetarian), or two small cups of melted yogurt! I know that there were some other options – which were all gone by the time we got there (2.30). And was else did our admission price get us? The music was disappointing – and intermittent – and …? I hope it’s better next year. A lot of people went home hungry, and disappointed. The highlight was the pie-eating contest – and I have some great photos!

    Local foods from the market are much safer and healthier. Many existing foods nowadays that are not safe. Let us consider first our local foods for safer.

    Me too! I always try to buy local when I can, though unfortunately there’s not a lot of choice where I live.

    Looking forward to next year though!
