Autumn on Parade in Oregon IL

Come along won't you

we're on our way to

We walked up and down the street lined with food venders.

It was a difficult decision with sooo many choices, but we each finally settled on something for lunch...
for me it was a baked potato with sour cream and chives. My sweet Mr. chose the ribeye sandwich,
my daughters, pizza. 

Then of course we couldn't pass up
some apple cider donuts, kettle corn and
the famous apple fritters baked up
fresh throughout the day by some church ladies.
We look forward to these the whole year. 

We head back to the lawn chairs we had placed earlier to watch the parade.

A Stilt walking fairy and scarecrow...


this guy walked, rode
and did stunts on his giant wheely thing

lots of marching bands kept everybody's toes tapping... 

 the Jesse White Tumblers are always a favorite...

 not sure what this was but it sure went fast,
zipping up and down the street

( oops!     shhhhhhh.....a young woman seated on a blanket on the ground
in front of where we were sitting

 has a wardrobe malfunction.... )

yikes!!!!  don't let this happen to you

After the parade we went on
 to tour the approx. 150  crafters and others

which lined the streets around the town square

gorgeous fall flowers

and  fall produce for sale as well

these Sweet Dumpling Squash are a favorite at our house;
we had to buy a few to have on hand for baking up 
during the fall season ....

the day is over all too soon,
time to go home

my feet thank me...

do you have  Fall Fest where you live?
Warm Hugs
