Kutztown Folk Festival

The Funnel Cakes alone makes it worth the trip!This 4th of July Joe & I went to the 60th Annual Kutztown Folk Festival. As always we had a wonderful time. When our kids were young we would go every year, planning a camping trip to the area and going to the festival on multiple days. It is a great family outing, a ton of things for the kids to participate in, lots of history, music, square dancing, petting zoo, horse drawn merry go round, crafts etc. For the Adults there is a wonderful variety of high quality handmade items, with a lot of the artists demonstrating their crafts. Rumor has it that the beer in the Beer Garden is ice cold too and always seems to have a croud! There is a good variety of food and if you’ve never been to an OX Roast, this is the place to go! It’s an annual event I highly recommend! Next years festival dates are July 3 –July 11 2010 Kutztown FestivalGotta love recycled garden art, and for me this was love at first sight! Bill & Margaret Tamburino of "Funcrafters" created this dragonfly and they have several more pieces that I look forward to purchasing in the future. You can email them for future show info; Funcrafters@enter.net
Wherever I go I’m always on the lookout for hand made Christmas ornaments made by local artists, this year I hit the jackpot! I bought quite a few but by far these by the “Tin Tinker” are my absolute favorites! Tin Tinker
