One of my favorite events of the year is the Backroads Farm Tour - I would love to see more local businesses band together for events like this. Thirteen businesses group together through the Campbell County Conservation District and put on the event - it's a great time!
You get a map and head out on your way - there are animals, vegetables, lots of grills going and just a great time. You can get tours and learn a lot too! Here's the map from this year - in case you want to still check out some of the businesses - many are open to the public throughout the summer/year.
One thing was that we saw a LOT of horses! It was great - I love horses - so it was fun petting them.
This is the look of a man who is busy eating a delicious burger!!!
And she just got 3rd place at Nationals - congrats Lindsay!
After the Farm Tour - we headed to the newly opened Washington Park where they were having a flea market of sorts.
She sort of looked like a less redneck and older version of Honey Boo Boo Child. We ordered 3 lemonades and a rice krispie treat and said, "So how's business today?"
After quite a long pause, this 9 year old entrepreneur said..."PAUSE - Well, not too good - you're only my 3rd customer of the day - but I'll keep at it."
We all BURST into laughter - it was such an adult answer and so thought out - we were laughing about that for weeks! We gave her a big tip...
So - there's our day at the Backroads Country Farm Tour as well as Washington Park and some lemonade from a spunky 9 year old. That all adds up to a fun day in the 'Nati.
Get out and explore!
