Let's go to the Fair... the way it used to be

In October, a number of Oliver owners met up in lovely Plumtree NC, and camped together to enjoy the Woolly Worm Festival in Banner Elk, and the little Valle Crucis Country Fair in the tiny town of the same name. Same weekend.

Little Valle Crucis Fair is run by volunteers from the area, in a hayfield. Beautiful, and amazing, artisans in the booths, homemade food (chlili, bbq pork, hot dogs, roasted sweet corn, stew...). The traffic is pretty awful, because the roads are tiny and winding, but when you get there, you're rewarded with a delightful, all Americana event. Great country/mountain music, including a children's tent where the young ones perform, and the whole thing is only a one-day event. You can buy everything from local apples to locally made wooden bowls to handmade woolen scarves and jewelry, and enjoy the true rural spirit of America.

Here's a photo of the parking lot:


You can see the tents in the background.

We enjoyed a beautiful October day in the "valley of the cross", in the Appalachian Mountains. If you're ever in the area the second Saturday in October, I hope you'll do the same.
