One of the things I love about small town charm are its happenings. I tell you our summer music in the park series, where I can enjoy the warm weather and let the kids run and play while listening to good local music and eating picnic food is a really special time for me. I guess I love all seasons in their own unique way, but summer time seems to melt your cares away.
Last weekend I took my kids to the Cornucopia Festival here in Flagstaff. I did it mostly for the pictures of the kids and I got some great ones, but it was unusually hot for this time of year, so we didn’t last long. We topped it all off with a trip to Dairy Queen with some friends of ours.
To my surprise, I didn’t have to park incredibly far away or pay for parking. But I was hot before we even arrived at the gate to pay. JJ quickly spotted the Ferris Wheel and the bounce houses. So we paid admission then paid for tickets for those things. There were a couple great things to do for the kiddos.
Here’s some shots from that day:
How can you celebrate the coming of Fall without pumpkins?
or horseback rides?
The kids had a blast of course,
And of course, no modern-day festival would be complete without a drone hovering overhead.
Have you taken your kiddos to a fall festival or carnival this year? What’s your favorite part about this time of year?
