Planters Day Carnival
We always look forward to the Woodland Planters Day Festival!! Parades, carriage rides, a carnival, frog jump, penny scramble, bed races, all sorts of fun stuff and...fireworks!! We love to go down to the carnival on Thursday night, let the girls ride a few rides, play at the playground and soak in the excitement. Then just before 10 o'clock we set up a little picnic right on the edge of Horseshoe Lake and watch a spectacular display of fireworks set off over the water. The whole town comes out for the show! (Frankly, for a small town, it is extremely impressive.) I love the way the excitement builds as the girls see the carnival being set up and then march by it in the Children's Parade. You can't beat it!
