It's that time again -- Croakerfest in Oriental!
This is Oriental's annual July 4th celebration.
For a few days this little village wakes from its usual quiet slumber and is awash in visitors and tourists.
This morning at 9:00 tent vendors were already setting up in Lou Mac Park on the green grass that's usually free for napping and puppy play.
The boy scout troop is here too ~ Note the low-slung live oak trees and the strings of lights. This is our rural version of "swag"!
It's the 35th Croaker Festival. Each year they have a contest to see who can design the winning logo. Here's this year's winner:
Colorful wares are sold all weekend. These are versatile wrap dresses.
Lots of bunting is being sported around town.
Happy Independence Day, everyone! I'll have more later. Adam and I plan to watch the fireworks display Saturday night from the comfort of our boat, out on Smith Creek with the other boaters.
