Saturday – Mule Days

We had read on TRVN that a local town, Winfield, AL, was having a festival of sorts called “Mule Days”.   They had a parade, arts & crafts, and a large flea market.  With very few forms of entertainment in and around Red Bay, we opted to check it out…………. even thought, it was raining when we woke up on Saturday morning.

We drove the 50 miles, and arrived about 11:00am.  We had just missed the parade, obvious from all of the “brown apples” in the middle of the streets!!  It was still raining, and it must of really rained earlier, because everybody was wet, and a lot of the products under the canopies was also wet!  In fact, even though they had paid $50 to get the booth, most of the vendors was closing shop and loading up their stuff.  It was a very large affair, but the rain just beat them down.   Here are some of the pictures:

The kids still had fun, like the one running through the ditch and those on the bungee rides………..

After we left, we saw a lot of the wagons and mules being hauled home.  The first picture shows one of the rigs stuck in the grass/mud at the high school where they parked.  They used a front end loader to push it out.  The others, we passed on our way back to Red Bay:

When we got back to Red Bay, the sun came out and it was a nice day.  We walked around the campground, and visited with other Tiffin owners.
