The Yankee Peddler Festival

As the weatherman predicted, today was a much better day than yesterday. Early morning clouds gave way to late morning and afternoon sunshine.

We began our day with breakfast at Cracker Barrel. After breakfast we drove approximately 30 miles from Akron, OH, to Canal Fulton, where we attended the 38th annual Yankee Peddler Festival. The Yankee Peddler Festival takes place on three consecutive weekends each year in September. More than 200 arts and crafts booths are set up in seven areas across the 75-acre grounds. As shown on the map displayed below the seven areas are: Liberty Village, Muskrat Cove, Quail Hollow, The Glen, Militia Meadow, Possum Run, and Hoot Owl Roost. All seven areas have a stage for live entertainment such as musicians, puppeteers and dancers.

    Wow, you got some great pictures of the people. I can never seem to get the people pictures, must be that I am more comfortable with animals and plants :). Looks like a great time.
