MooFest

Yesterday our family joined Dumma (who drove up from Atlanta for this festival) attended the FIRST ANNUAL MOO FEST together.

Here is the Official Website for MooFest: http://www.nationalmoofest.com/

We walked all through downtown Athens to see crafts, products, and demonstrations. There were crafts, antique sewing machines, organic farm products, jewelry, handmade musical instruments, and so much more. All combined, these "booths" made up a wonderful variety.


Mayfield Dairy had a very big presence at the MooFest Dairy Festival of course. And this meant there were a lot of yummy treats -- icecream, popcicles, and more.

Here are the 6 Cherubs with Maggie -- Mayfield's Mascot.

And here they are with another human-sized Maggie.

After walking all through town to see all of the vendors and demonstrations, we went to the Carnival Area ....

Cherub 5 LOVED riding the Elephants ... of course. Cherub 2, our friend Miss Em, and Cherub 1 on the Ferris Wheel.

Arriving home just a bit after 6pm, we were EXHAUSTED.

And we all agreed that the First Annual MooFest Dairy Festival was a smashing success, and we are looking forward to next year !!

I've never even heard of MooFest! Sounds like so moooo-ch fun (I know, that was really bad!!!).

I remember going on a field trip as a kid, maybe 6 years old, and getting to milk Rosebud. I even had a button that said, "I milked Rosebud." I kept that thing for a lot of years!
