Sugar Creek Arts Festival

This weekend was the 25th annual Sugar Creek Arts Festival. I love living right next to uptown Normal and campus!!! Today we brought the kids and Argos to the festival, and a great time was had by everyone. It was a great arts festival!! No twee license plate birdhouses and scented candles. There was an astonishing diversity of arts and crafts, with festival food and live entertainment.

Rust bugs

Rust dogs

Joseph makes jewelry and a visor.

Wise-ass balloon man! (Is there any other kind?)

Joseph explains why he chose pineapple ice.

Argos was pet by so many people that he was palpably greasy by the time he got home. It was rather hot and humid, so we tried to keep Argos in the shade as much as possible, and he spent a lot of time lying in different booths.

Here's the Pantagraph story

So, why DID Joseph choose pineapple ice? From his various expressions, I have to say I'm intrigued.
