There are generally four or five stages of live music that play all day, dozens of crafters, lots of local organizations tabling and great (but greasy) food. Virtually the whole town turns out to it, and this year was somehow more exciting than usual, since the Bee now has so many in-town friends from her school. The town gets jammed with people who come from surrounding areas, but we can just walk down, walk home for lunch or to pee, and walk back to continue the fun. Our street gets completely parked up, but it's a small price to pay to have this much to do in one weekend day.
One of the people who comes every year is a woman who does traveling bug shows, for schools and birthday parties. This is a picture of the Bee, holding an almost six-inch-long millipede. I was totally skeeved out while she was doing it, but proud of her for not being "girly" and for wanting to hold it. After she gave it back, she said it felt sticky. *Shudder!*
But I know that part of my reaction to a six-inch long bug is gendered, and I'm glad she doesn't have the same reaction.
