Our annual "Hometown Days" festival starts today and runs through Sunday. We close off a section of the main thoroughfare through town and a carnival sets up. Tilt-A-Whirl, Ferris Wheel, Bumper Cars, Big Slide, A Fun House, Chair-O-Planes, and Games of Chance and Skill ... all for a shockingly overpriced ticket amount. We also have some county fair type of things ... oh, heck, you can check it all out here. There's a parade, a big name concert on Sunday -- last year we had one of the "American Idol" runner-ups plus national Christian recording artist Mark Schultz (my band was privileged to warm up for him) -- so really, it's just a big party for about four days, and a lot of fun.
It's one clear sign in our little corner of the world that summer is just about here.
And that means that Vacation Bible Schools will be starting before you know it.
