Grayson Highlands Festival

I thought I would share with you all some of our pictures from our visit to the Grayson Highlands Festival today with the Horn’s.  We saw lots of crafts and hand made items.

This was one of the biggest attractions.  The making of molasses.

Here they are pouring the hot fresh made molasses into jars for selling.  We, of course, bought one.

There was lots of food and lots of music.

But these little guys were the main attraction.  They auction off these wild ponies every year.  We stayed for a little of the auction but the rain finally forced us to leave.

It was a really fun day.  I will show you some more of the pictures with the fall colors in my next post.  I hope you all have a great weekend and God bless.
