The 50th Annual Putnam County Dairy Festival in living color.

I was very disappointed there were no live cows this year.  It was kind of sad to me.  49 years of cows stomping around the court house square and then bam, no more live cows.

So I did take a picture of the one HUGE cow that came to be a part of the parade.  Mayfield is always a part of our Dairy Festival and on the court house square all day long you can get free milk, free chocolate milk and free ice cream.  I guess for the kids this is the very favorite part of the festivities.

Seemed to also be a super big crowd this year and while I was attempting to get some good photographs people were mingling in front of me and I'm not one to push my way to the front, so I hope you enjoy these pictures I took of the parade.

The restored ladder truck was driven by my Uncle Eugene Hubert who is the Eatonton Assistant Fire Chief and if you missed my earlier post with the "firehouse" doggie in the window I thought he was really cute.

 

The couple in the convertible are this years selected Dairy Family and then the Dairy Queen and her court.

I wish I could have gotten a better picture of the Pilot Club FLoat.  They had children dressed up as cows.

Now I'm not sure about the idea of a cow angle, but this church had one on their float along with Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus.  It's one of those things you had to see to believe I think.

And there were lots of tractors, after all we were celebrating Dairy Farmers.  And of course you can see we had a huge crowd.  There were side streets filled with crafts, and street food.  I ate my annual blooming onion.  I as a rule do not eat fried foods, but just once a year I just have to have my blooming onion.  And there was some awesome entertainment on the court house lawn in the afternoon.

So next year I'll be back again at the 51st Annual Putnam County Dairy Festival.  Maybe I'll walk around and see the crafts during the parade to beat the crowd.  :)  And avoid the LONG line my daughter and I waited in to get our onion.

Hope to see you there next year too.  The Dairy Festival is ALWAYS the FIRST SATURDAY of JUNE.
