Winnebago, Il. Pumpkin and Scarecrow Festival

Winnebago Il.  Fun for the Family-

You will all have to check out the videos at Buy Bago on Youtube.   I got to help out yesterday with the Winnebago Chamber of Commerce Pumpkin and Scarecrow Festival,  and watched folks have fun with their little ones for four hours.  Many scarecrows made and we actually had to go get extra pumpkins and gourds for the kids to decorate.  Raffle baskets were made and sold and kids got to ring the bell with the firemen and get their hair decorated and jump on one of those big inflatable toys and throw bean bags, and devour cupcakes and hot chocolate and hot dogs, and even though it was chilly, I think everyone had a good time.  I think the merchants involved had fun,  I certainly enjoyed watching the kids.  It was peaceful and then we were cleaning up,  and I left to go watch my son play football in Kaneland, while Kris Steinwand, who orchestrates this effort,  and Rhonda and Rett and Jared and a couple of other folks were putting everything away for next year.  I may get to be much more involved in this next year, as Kris is retired and moving to Las Vegas soon.  But for yesterday, I handed out Buy Bago cards and hopefully made folks more aware of the Buy Bago program.
