In 1999, we had 10 bands at the Mitchell Persimmon Festival ... for it was their 150th anniversary and they paid the bands to come). These days - most bands (such as ours) are out every Saturday traveling to contests around the State of Indiana. Sundays have become a "day of rest." However - it is really important to represent your community at the hometown parade, so Paoli Band is glad to do their
History of The Ionia Fair Grounds The Ionia free fair is a great attraction for not only Michiganders but people all over the US. With many attractions, food vendors, and famous appearances the Ionia Free Fair is one of the best sources for summer fun in Mid-Michigan. However the fair grounds weren 't always fairgrounds. In fact before Ionia was even formed there were quite a few Native American clans around that area including The O--wash-to-nong, The Quab-i-quash-sha, The Cob-moos-a, The Mish-i-min-econ, and The Pish-im-ne-con. One of the final chiefs in Ionia was Cobmoosa a popular Chief along the Grand River.
The Oklahoma State Fair offers an exciting experience like no other. After walking through the crowded parking lot, it is time to purchase a ticket. The Fair has multiple discount days including opening day, school kids day, super saver Tuesday, and senior citizens day. Anticipation builds from this point on. There are in array of activities
This year the festival will feature some spectacular carnival rides, great live entertainment, 5K and 10K races, a car show, a parade, and KidFest (which includes a bicycle decorating contest, pie eating contest, water balloon toss and more, for kids 14 and under.) There’s even a Peach Queen and royal Peach Court—this year, those roles are filled by Mianna Gonczar and Shelby VanOphem. And, of course, there are always delicious peaches and peach products at various stands all over the festival. I spent two days in Savannah, Georgia this summer—the peach capital of the USA—and I still believe that Romeo’s peaches could compete with Georgia’s any day.
When considering a place to dine, there are many reasons why a person would choose one eating place over another. Some people dine out three or four times a week, where others may only eat out once or twice a month.

It is always more of a social gathering than anything else. People will always asking “if you have been to get a greasy fair burger”. Even though this tradition is not associated with the school, we always take preK-4 on a field trip to the
The combination of the perfectly melted cheese in between the two charred patties and the way the A.1. sauce seeps into the beef and mixes with the caramelized onions is delicious. But this is not the only thing they serve that is great, I have never had anything off their menu that I did not enjoy. All of the meals served at Whataburger come with amazing fries.
I felt a strong sense of community within the powwow and with all the attendants. It felt like everyone knew someone else and anyone who did not was quickly included. Toward the end of my shift the announcer mentioned there being a lunch on Sunday open to everyone at someone’s home. It’s not often that people are regularly included in a community in such a way. Many communities tend to feel closed off, however none of that feeling was present at the powwow.
How to cook the perfect Boston butt in the oven Pork is the most popularly consumed meat in America and there is no surprise as to why. I mean, who doesn’t love slow cooked, delicious, BBQ? Whether you prefer sliced, chopped, or pulled pork; a Boston butt is the absolute best cut of meat for the job.

But how often do you truly have the time to hunt down the best BBQ or venture to your favorite BBQ restaurant?
It’s August again and that means that it’s just about time for the Minnesota State Fair. This time of the year we like to take a break from food safety certification MN and HACCP testing to take in the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of this once a year event. From ogling prize winning agricultural feats, to taking in concerts, to finding the most audacious, rule-breaking, deep-fried items on a stick, there is something for everyone. This week, we’d like to share exactly why we think our fair is the best the country has to offer. Every state says that their state fair is bigger and better than the rest, but us Minnesotans believe otherwise.
One fun, and sometimes scary plus thrilling event that people love to do is riding a rollercoaster. Rollercoaster can look crazy and even scary which makes any person afraid to get on one. Then, that moment when you decide to get on it 's exactly what you expect the ride to do. Including, the fact it makes a person want to ride it over again and again after that the thrill the person can get. The secret of having a awesome rollercoaster ride is acceleration because its change in speed and directions.
It was odd how the food was prepared. Typically for family gatherings there would be a nice feast. Delicious food with plenty for everyone to have seconds, but funerals, no. For funerals, we had already made sandwiches bought from the local store. Gross compared to our normal meals.
The San Bernardino County fair is a great way to spend summer vacation with rides, food and activities/attractions. Every year tons of people come to the fair whether it’s just to walk around, see many attractions, or view people’s entries. Many people submit items from quilts to jams, to cake and paintings. Others may enter their cows, goats, and chickens to be viewed by judges to see if there well enough to win best of show. I had the opportunity to go to the fair on Girl scout Day with my Girl scout troop and found that my troop leader Ruth Coe and a fellow member Esther Coe had won first place and second places on their jams along with a first for a mini quilt and first/second for home cakes.
