Cornbread Festival




Yesterday, Hub, Baby Boy, Rachel, and I attended the Cornbread Festival in South Pittsburg, Tennessee.  South Pittsburg is where Lodge makes all those iron skillets to cook cornbread in.


I think the festival is twelve years old, and this was our third time to attend.  It was an almost-perfect day.


Rhonda Vincent and the Rage put on a good show, and their sponsor, Martha White, was generous with gifts and samples.


Cornbread Alley lets you sample many different kinds of cornbread, including some with chocolate chips and pecans.  They were all good, but after all that sampling, I was thinking it might be a little better with a pork chop to go with it.


With more than sixty vendors with real art, it was hard to choose what to take home.


I especially loved the bird houses.






It was hard to miss this one-man band clown.  His doll had eyes like Chucky and it kinda scared some of us. 



Then the clouds started churning, and we left a little sooner than we had planned to.  We were in Scottsboro when the rain began.  We drove the rest of the way home in the rain; thankfully, we didn't encounter any bad storms.

It was excellent kick-off for the festival season, and I can't wait until the next one.
