This year may go down as the year that I didn’t get to any events. Lately the weather has been so bad that a day dry enough to walk to Geeveston is an event in itself. So this weeks photos will be from the archives again.
One type of event I’m very fond of is country shows. When I lived in the suburbs it was a rare opportunity to get into the country but even now I enjoy it. Country shows are great places to see animals and buy delicious home-made produce. Often there will be a “Trash and Treasure ” type market. Naomi and I will go anywhere for secondhand stalls, you never know what you may find.
I used to always try to go to Oatlands for the Spring Fair. There was a parade, a market and a farm show. These two photographs are from the 2010 Fair.
Naomi and I visited the fair at Woodsdale which is a tiny town not too far from Oatlands back around 2009.
Nearer to home Middleton is a little town on the Channel Highway. The Middleton Fair is in late summer and I attended a couple of times when I was volunteering at the local radio station. Usually though David and I would just take a drive to see the entries for the Scarecrow competition. In case you hadn’t noticed I am rather partial to pipe bands.
