Harvest time also means festival time. There have already been nearly 50 fall festivals this year in small towns all across Kentucky. I’ve been to three so far, how about ya’ll? What is your favorite harvest festival? Your favorite festival tradition?
(Mine is the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival in Evansville, In – it will be celebrating it 92nd year this weekend!)
The 39th Annual Midway Fall Festival, pictured above, took place a couple of weekends ago. It has been named one of Kentucky’s top twenty festivals. It features crafts, food, demonstrators, entertainment and children’s activities.
Midway is a classic railroad town. Its main street remains divided by the tracks and its major streets are still named after railroad officials. Random facts: it is midway between Frankfort and Lexington, hence it’s name, and it was the birthplace of Frank and Jesse James’ mother!
