When I arrive I try to arrange everything somewhat neat but it doesn’t take long and it looks really messy because either I am demonstrating or the kids are operating the projects. It seems for almost every group of kids and/or parents I have to explain what each project is. I don’t mind that at all because at least it shows some level of interest. Some parents have their kids guess what the projects are and then expand on how each project works. At one time there was a grandfather, father, and daughter looking at my projects when a reporter from the local newspaper came by.
Someone asked me if there were any more 4th small town celebrations in the area, they said Summerfest was wonderful as it was so typical small town USA. I would have to agree; running race; fishing contest, kid’s rides, pedal tractor pull, craft vendors, live music, and food. Later in the day there is a parade and fireworks.
