Another day at the Festival

As I was looking through the pictures on my memory card, I ran across a few really neat ones that I never knew I had! These were taken by my husband the day of the Festival in town. (You know, while I was working!) They put on a really neat Civil War Reenactment downtown. I heard the "gunshots" going off but I never got a chance to see it first hand. Thanks to my husband, now I can!
Look at the kids at the back. . . Too cute!

Walking through the crowd were the Civil War Widows. They had the Priest following behind them as they walked with their umbrellas.

He was so excited to see the reenactment they had put on! I had no idea he was running around playing photographer for the event!
During the festival, we also had a local artist, Belinda Muth, set up out front. She painted a beautiful Fall scene in pastels. She has several pieces of her art displayed in the shop as well. She painted spring florals onto an old wooden window that I had in storage. It turned out beautiful! You can see it in the background of this picture. She has amazing talent and I am glad that she chose Back in the Day to display her work!
I will take some pictures of her art and post them so you all can see her talent!
Until then, I hope everyone has a great weekend!

How neat! I love learning about the Civil War era. The sad thing is, there really were kids with the soldiers!
I'm so glad your hubby took these shots. What a very fun show that was.
Looking forward to seeing a close-up of your painted window too.
Have a nice weekend!
