Valley Country Fair

On the 3rd Saturday of each October, a bit of Americana sprouts up at the height of the fall color season in Valle Crusis, NC. What began many years ago as a local church bazaar has grown into a "go-to" destination for folks from all over . . . all proceeds go to local organizations supportting those in need.

Fine musicians take the stages throughout the day much to the delight of the crowds. You may get a chance to enjoy a master at "Playin' the Saw" (which was amazing, by the way) and encourage younger talent as they pick out some old standards.

Step on up and get close with a real live llama . . . don't worry, the handler will let you know if he's getting ready to spit! LOL

Booth after booth will entice you with items such as these beautiful hand made nesting baskets.

Kim, Lois, Herm, Paul, and Sherry gave this fair a big thumbs up.

The next Valle Country Fair will be held Oct 15th, 2011. Don't miss it!

Outstanding scenery, memories galore, makes me want to see so much more!

Hit a new high temp of 73F yesterday. Harvesting, making soups for the winter. The "kids" helped by eating the lower green beans and raspberries. Such good little helpers!

Great photos, Peter!
