Tulip Festival Street Fair 2007
This is a scene showing one of the booths. Many were selling various crafts and art work, including photos. This one is a pretty good example of what they were.
This little Yorkie didn't seem to mind his outfit although I really think it was too warm for him to be dressed this way. He was one of a few dogs that were in attendance. All were well behaved and all were on leashes.
Another booth seen through some of the local city flower plantings. It isn't called the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival for no reason. There are tulips all over the place. The plants are grown for their bulbs that are then sold all over the world. The flowers are almost a waste product as far as the farmers are concerned. But, they are pretty.
I thought this wood carver was pretty good and his wife does the painting. They are entirely hand done, with lots to choose from. I picked this one because it was kind of pretty and it was in a good position to take a photo of it.
We didn't spend a lot of money but did buy a few ear rings, a sign for a gift, a bag of great tasting roasted cashew nuts and lunch. The weather forecast for tomorrow says we may have showers and it usually seems to rain on this event, so we may have picked the best day of all three to visit. It was fun and a nice break from my packing things at home. I also got a haircut, but not at the Street Fair. I have to get prettied up for next weekend!
Wow, next weekend is coming on fast now !! HOpe it all goes magically.
Take care, Meow
