I'll admit it was the name that got me first:
Strange Folks Festival
and then the location:
What would that even look like?
Farmers who didn't wear bib overalls?
Farmwives tarted up with lip rouge?
THIS I had to see for myself -
and I'm so glad I did!
There were peaceful places of respite
for kids and adults alike
and vendors selling repurposed,
I saw mostly 'normal people':
if by normal you include
older 'hippies' and the newer generations versions
tatted, pierced and with rainbow hair -
which I do!
People who value hand produced crafts
over commercially made,
with a twist.
In short -
If these folks are strange,
then the world needs more just like them
It was wonderful;
can't wait to go again next year!!
