Festival of Spring

Earlier this month we went to a festival in Luray. Several blocks of Main Street were blocked off and craft vendors and food booths lined the street. Children's activities were offered in the adjacent park.

Luray is a charming town in the valley between the Massanutten Range and the Blue Ridge.

A man with a pet monkey and  magic tricks was entertaining children.

When I saw this bright-eyed dog, I asked permission to take a picture. What an interesting face!

Even law enforcement offered entertainment in the form of a small paddy wagon that citizens could pose inside

The Girl Scouts had a Peeps Show as a fund raiser. This involves dioramas of "Peeps" (marshmallow figures).
