Saturday we had our first experience at the Annual Peach Festival! We had a BLAST to say the least! They blocked off all of the down town square just for this event.
Peaches, Peaches, Peaches, and More PEACHES!!! Of course there HAD to be peaches at the Peach Festival. There was Peach Tea, Peach Julep, Peach Honey, Peach Salsa, Peach Cobbler, Peach Homemade Ice Cream... Need I go on!
I could not believe the crowd that turned out for the Festival! There were people everywhere. We had been told, "everyone from everywhere will be here on Saturday". Well, they weren't kidding! Even with the crowd the event still had that small town feel! I keep waiting for the festival to be shown on the FOOD NETWORK. You know, I have been told this IS the Peach Capital of the TEXAS!(the courthouse is the big building in the background)
While we were enjoying the Peaches and craft booths we listened to good ole country music from local bands and local favorites. No, they didn't sing about peaches!
From what we heard the one thing we HAD to try was the Homemade Peach Ice Cream. So, we stood in line for a bit...a bit longer...ok, a bit longer...then
We ate the BEST Homemade Peach Ice cream this side of the Brazos (Ha!) Yummy!
Then once we got K's belly nice and full (wise decision?)we went to the Kiddo Area for lots of kid fun!
I don't think the K-Man had fun at all (yeah,right!)
We made it home with a half a peck of Peaches and Peach Salsa. Well, and four full bellies of Peach Goodies! If you're not busy next July, the Peach Festival is just PEACHY!
