So when hubby suggested a trip to Wilmington, Ohio's Banana Split Festival today it was thumbs up all around.
When we arrived we were a little worried we'd have to do some major walking just to get to the festival grounds, you see the temperataure was well into the 80's (humid as all get-out) and parking was across the street. But the festival folks were very efficient, having a nice little golf cart shuttle service running betwixt and between.
No sooner had we arrived on the grounds than we honed in on the Banana Split tent.
You place your order, receive your dish...
Peppermint Patty's...very scrumptious. We passed it on the way out of town and decided that we would need to make a pit stop there sometime soon.
Aside from the obvious attraction, the rest of the festival was your typical small town doin's.
Dunk tanks and bandstands...
...I did find the cutest necklaces sold by the sweetest lady I'd met in a while. Apparently her tent had blown over earlier in the day and she nearly threw in the towel. I'm glad she was a trooper and didn't, I enjoyed our meeting.
Here is the necklace I chose...
Her name is Jennifer and you can find her at: http://recycledcharms.com/. She sells her necklaces for $5.00 each and there is no additional charge for a custom request. Shipping and handling is .80. I thought it was extremely reasonable. So if you're looking for a well made, adorable bauble, check her out!
(PS...I am in no way affiliated with this vendor...I just like her stuff....;-))
So much for the latest in the Riverspitter Adventure Journal. I'm getting geared up for some baking in the next week or so and hope to post something new in that department. What to bake...what to bake....?
Thanks for tagging along today. Somehow posting these sorts of things here puts the icing on the cupcake for me...or should I dare to say...cherry on top...;-)
