What better way to spend the Fourth of July than at a festival.
This was my first time to the Kutztown Folk Festival and it was blistering hot.
Hex signs and quilts are a staple in PA Dutch tradition.
The quilt barn was amazing and all the pieces were for sale.
Glassblowing, weaving and beekeeping were only some
of the other traditional crafts being demonstrated.
For lunch I had a hotdog with sauerkraut and a huge cup
of freshly squeezed lemonade, yum.
I love the little goat in the livestock tent and the girl
braiding the horse's forelock would have been me many years ago.
A Wood Thrush print, various herbal concoctions and simple stoneware mug
all came home with me.
Happy Fourth of July!
