Not quilting but… today……..

Well, let me show you the “outside crew” at DS/DILs gas station/convenience store……Day 1 of our town’s annual summer event known as “Houston Hoedown”. As I mentioned in a previous post, our little town boasts(?) a population of approximately 995 and, yet, this event is ranked in the top 10 events in the state!!! It has been known to attract upwards of 7,000 people over the course of the 3 days. Today was relatively quiet but….tomorrow, that’s going to be another story! Anyhow, these are the few photos I managed of the area set up for the BBQ that our son is doing all weekend. So far (as of 9:00 tonight), just under 300# of pulled pork and chicken has made its way into the tummies of attendees!!!  IMG_9235IMG_9240    Some of the happy helpers this afternoon. IMG_9238   A small peek at 2 of the 3 smokers filling the air with a wonderful “come hither” aroma. My station was at the sinks, washing pizza pans and miscellaneous other items. Maybe I can get a photo for tomorrow. No promises…………………….

  1. Perfect weather is right. We attended a wedding and a family reunion in sw MN and were outdoors nearly the entire weekend. 🙂

  2. I had no idea this was among the top events in Minnesota. The BBQ may just get us there one of these years.

  3. Looks like so much fun.

    I have great memories of Blossom Festival growing up in Cañon City, CO. Community festivals are the best!
