Kreidersville Covered Bridge Festival

 We felt we were visiting the town from Runaway Bride as we enjoyed the Covered Bridge Festival in Kreidersville. It seemed the entire town gathered around its historic bridge for this semiannual event. Built in 1839, this is the only remaining covered bridge in our county. There had been plans to replace it with a concrete bridge in the 1950's but thanks to the support of local citizens the bridge was one of the first to be recognized for preservation. Money made from this festival help with it's upkeep.

We attended both days of the festival. We had so much fun the first we decided we couldn't miss the second.  There was something for everyone to enjoy!

Church made perogies, birch beer and hand cut fries exceeded my expectaion of festival food. We even got to watch the potatoes being brought in by tractor after being hand scrubbed at the barn. Who does that anymore?

 There was music in and around the covered bridge. EJ danced to her heart's content.

She also got go on a tractor pulled hayride, see and touch some snakes, get her face painted, ride a pony, go in an Indian teepee, pump water, and a variety of other fun activities.

 Needless to say she was tuckered out after an exciting weekend at the festival.
