For the past forty years, the last Saturday and Sunday of September (or thereabouts) have been dedicated in this town to "The Earth Festival." It is, of course, another small-town Indiana street fair, hosting vendors from miles around. We have attended, at least one year in the past, when we had to walk through driving snow to get back to where we had parked our car. This year, though, was perfect, weather-wise, for the sun shone brightly on the festival, the temperature was pleasant, and a good time was clearly being had by lots of people.
BBBH and I rode the scooter to Atlanta, walked the streets, and in her case, the lady talked to some of the vendors, and yes, bought stuff. But no more stuff than we could carry home on the scooter.
Like fruit flies to pears on the ground, people seem to be attracted to cheaply-made and over-priced merchandise. Find Waldo? No, find BBBH. She is in this picture.*

People are also attracted to over-priced junk food. There were actually lines at some food stands.
As I snapped this shot, I thought, "This will be the best picture of the day." I think it is. This residence is on the Tipton County side of County Line Road and just two blocks from "downtown." There is a kid peeking through the curtain of the window, stage right.
Someone always seems to have a set of old wheels.
