It was a perfect autumn day for...

It was a perfect autumn day for the Algonquin Mill Festival.  Hubby and I have been attending this  annual affair for years.   When it first started there were just a few locals that got together.  They would have a barn dance and some refreshments.   Now hundreds visit this lovely spot. 


What makes the festival so successful is the careful planning that the historical society does to make everything special.  There is something for everyone to enjoy. 


              There is a train trip for the young...






or a wagon ride...
 
 
a bookstore...  
 
 
  a car show... 
 great music ...
and art. 
 
 
Of course this festival would not be complete without good food.
 
  
The chicken is cooked on an open fire.    One can dine at picnic tables or sit on top of the hillside.  I prefer the latter because the view is spectacular.
 
Hope you enjoyed the Mill Festival.   Thanks for coming along.
