Coldwater Strawberryfest & Craft Show 2009

It started out as a damp, overcast day...

but eventually the sun broke through and turned out to be another great day for the 2009 Strawberryfest (June 20th), sponsored by the Downtown Business Association. The temperature was about 80°F. Swarms of people came out, possibly more than last year.

Another view at the Four Corners.

Tent sales of arts and crafts were everywhere!

And food too...

... but ironically, no strawberries! Unless you were one of the lucky few to get there early. Three strawberry stands were completely sold out by about lunchtime.

The Oasis of Love Church was back again with their bounce house and other games for the kids.

Across the street, kids attempted "Double Dutch" ...

... and hula hoops...

Arthur Brogli was back again with his yodeling. I am proud to report that he and his wife have now purchased a new home and have moved to Coldwater!

One of the biggest attention-getters of the Strawberryfest was my niece with her wild hair style and face painting. Dozens of people started asking her where they could get the same thing, and soon we saw other mohawks on the sidewalks!

Here was the popular face painting booth.
