The afternoon that I attended the festival had a parade, a cartoonist award ceremony, plenty of barbeque to eat, an arts and crafts fair, entertainment, and children-oriented activities. I especially enjoyed the arts ad crats area, but the costumed Pogo character brought smiles to the faces of every child in attendance.
The opportunity to visit with a character from my childhood was of special importance to me. It took away for a moment many of the negative thoughts that were on my mind and gave me a moment of restful peace. I think that each of you should take at least one day during the last weekend in March to visit this celebration and get back to a more pleasant time in your life.
