Corn Festival is always fun!

Corn Festival

It was a beautiful day for a street festival,  just the right temp of maybe 83 or so. There were lots of people, as there always are, and people seemed to really be enjoying it.

I spent most of the day at Shippensburg Historical Society, showing people around in the Stewart House.  http://www.shippensburghistory.org/

But I also took a good tour of the whole festival, and enjoyed seeing all the crafts and also antiques that people bring to this nice event.  Here were some interesting merchants I checked out.

I bought a garlic sauce once before at Harry’s House of Heat. http://www.harryshouseofheat.com/ This time he had something called Blue Crab Salsa and I tried a sample, and quickly bought a jar of that!  It is good stuff. He is from Lemoyne, Pa.

Kris’s Kraft’s Stained Glass, www.kris-krafts.com jumped out at me when I saw the beautiful stained glass tables she made.  They are wonderful! She’s from Gainesville, Va.

Here’s a guy who bakes dog treats that looked good enough for people to eat!  “Treats So Good, They Rarely Get Buried” is his slogan.  www.MeandMyDogPetBakery.com  He is from Jamison, Pa.

Broom makers are always interesting to watch, making corn brooms in the old way.  Bob Haffly, Lone Oak Brooms, doesn’t have a web site, but his phone number is on his business card: 717-349-7979.  He’s from Amberson, Pa.

I saw so many interesting things today, but just picked out a few to show people what they missed if they didn’t come to the Corn Festival.  There’s always next year, the last Saturday in August!

  1. I just picked a couple merchants whose things took my eye. There are about 300 merchants of different items at each Corn Festival. So much to see!
