So, if morel mushrooms are what you are craving -- Richmond is the place to be! The next Mushroom Festival will be held on May 4 and May 5, 2012 in Downtown Richmond, Missouri.
The festival isn't all about mushrooms, however. There's over 130 tempting food and craft booths, carnival, parade, Motorcycle Show, Antique Tractor Show, live Christian Music Shows, Juried Fine Arts and Photography Show, youth tractor pull, talent contest, 5K FunGus Run, Little Mister and Miss Mushroom Contest, Beer Garden featuring Teacher'z Pet and more activities sprawling through the historic district during the two-day event.
The Annual Mushroom Festival is held the first weekend of May and we strive to make it the biggest and the best event possible each year.
While out and about today I noticed the carnival had pulled into town, beginning their setup process. I couldn't resist taking a few shots before the carnival got under way. The sign on the trailer says it all, beverage, sweets or popcorn of your choice.
Keep your fingers crossed I can sneak away on Saturday afternoon to take a few more pictures of all the carnival in full swing along with all the activity the Mushroom Festival creates.
Thank you for stopping by to say hello. Your sweet comments always touch our hearts. It is because of you I do what I do. Until next time.....
