It was too wet to plow, so we were without the plow teams. But the artists, demonstrators, food vendors, musicians, jesters, Gerry Barker and his ox cart, exhibitors and most of the animals were there as was a good crowd of festival goers.

The Homeplace festival organizers were pleased that several hundred turned out despite the threatening clouds.

The spirit of the day was festive and everyone seemed pleased.

The Homeplace Board is already planning for this year's annual Festival.
