The Parade. The Mule Day parade usually includes several local school marching bands, men on huge tractors, and hundreds of people on horses. These horses' "deposits" make traversing that road after the parade quite a smelly affair.
You can kind of see the marching band trumpets in the middle of this picture.
The Chicken Show. Yes, there are performing chickens at Mule Day. They even had a chicken who played the piano.
The crowd. Ok, so this is not exactly a positive. Especially when it is really really hot and some people don't understand the necessity of deodorant. Also, hellloooo passive aggressive mothers with strollers. I about lost all of my toes thanks to you.
Freshly ground Mule Day cornmeal. I see some yummy cornbread in our future.
Delicious apple butter. Just had some of this on some biscuits. Yum!
The cane syrup making. Cannot imagine how much literal sweat went into the
making of this syrup.
And that was Mule Day 2012! You guys should come next year!
