What a fabulous day at another successful Raspberry Festival! The weather was perfect and we feel this has been our most attended Raspberry Festival ever. It all came together so smoothly with lots of wonderful volunteers eager to help. There was a festive vibe in the air. People were relaxing in the shade listening to music and visiting, some were enjoying the art show and car show. Children were running around with their faces painted and balloons turned into animals by Slinky the Clown. Thank you to all who enjoyed the day with us!
