County Folk Festival in Henderson County

Updated on July 16, 2012

Having fun at the festival

Source

It was another HOT day!


It was another HOT day!

It was 99 degrees in the shade!

As we traveled to The Festival in Henderson County, TN we drove for one and one half hours.

It was nice just getting away and being with my husband. He had been in the hospital for months after being in a motorcycle accident.

We hadn’t been anywhere for so long this was our first outing.

It was the event of the summer for Henderson County.

We live out in the country and we drove into more country just the way we like it.

We got there and my husband was so happy there were lots of classic cars.

Wow ALL THE CLASSIC CARS!


Look at this one what about this one!! I was laughing at him. He was like a little boy.

You see I almost lost my husband. He almost died in that accident. It was so nice just watching him able to walk without a walker and not have to be in the wheelchair anymore. He had two major surgeries to just help him walk again. God is so good!

Van Looking good

There he is looking good.


Van had lost a lot of weight but he was determined he was going to get his strength back and walk again which he has done.

Walking through the festival we saw so many different tables and lots of crafts.

Jeannie from the festival

This lady is so awesome!


I got to meet Jeannie she is 65 years old. She just found out that she likes to draw. She drew women’s faces on T-shirts. Well guess what? I bought two. A purple one and a white one that she signed!

I have so many compliments when I wear them.

Awesome Airplanes

AIRPLANES!!!


And then there was the man that made airplanes, the airplanes were awesome and there were little people in them. They were so cute!

I Love This Dog!

I just had to take a picture.


I loved this beautiful White dog. I can’t remember what kind of dog, if anyone knows please tell me.


Quilt Making!

These Women blew me away!


Then there were the Quilt Making women. It was awesome! I wish I could do that!

Folk Singing

We had a great time. It was just so nice spending time with my husband and watching him get so excited and just being alive.

Thank you all for reading this and your wonderful comments that I know you all leave.

God Bless you all!

      It sounds like a festival I would like to go to, except for the almost triple digits. I love visiting different festivals, seeing the crafts and listening to the music.

      I feel so happy that your husband made it back and walking which was great news.

      Your great photos of the Craft Festival are amazing and the white dog type just won't come to me.

      We have old cars shows here in Las Vegas and a town called Henderson.

      Voted up and awesome, Joyce.

      Even in the 99° heat, being with your "walking" husband after that long recovery must have been marvelous. The fair looks like so much fun. I love to visit those kinds of fairs. Your pictures really tell the story and Van looked good. I'm happy for you and wish you husband a continued recovery. Awesome hub.

      Deb - I so enjoyed this upbeat hub. I am also glad to hear and see how well your Van is doing. Jannie the face drawing lady must have had her day made when you purchased her drawings. This is kin to me as we always enjoy the local fairs, car shows and other community country attractions.

      Wonderful and thanks for sharing. P.S. Beautiful dog!
