Awe...some Mondays

 From April through November, the First Friday of each month is celebrated around the square of our town. Each month is a different theme with vendors showing products and services that fit the theme. Now that Christmas is officially just around the corner, the November theme is TOYLAND!!! Walmart and Disney combine forces to bring in a huge compliment of vendors and products. One of the hits with the boys was obviously the pro wrestling action figures. Some of the accessories include a "cage match" suspended above the ring.
I know that all of us wanted a brand new Schwinn bicycle when we were kids. Well, they brought a collection of trail and mountain bikes along with an expert to demonstrate what you probably shouldn't try at home. Really, it was a great show.

Then there were the battery powered cars for the younger set. Our granddaughters shared one of these that was styled like a Jeep nearly twenty years ago. They drove the wheels off of it. The new styles are pretty cool.

The Nerf Mega dart gun seemed to be a hit with all of the kids. I think this model holds 30+ sponge darts.

Lego's brought a Lego Santa while Mr. & Mrs. Claus were busy with the kids on the other side of the square.
I got to photograph the event for the local downtown organization. It was a lot of fun, but it was busy. Seriously, there were nearly 10,000 people around the square. Let the Holiday Season begin! Have a blessed week.


  1. Yep, the holidays are just around the corner. What an awesome post with awesome pictures.

    Have a blessed day my friend. ☺

  2. Awww, i remember when mine were young, and they couldn't wait for toys and Christmas. Happy Monday!

  3. What an event. I'd like to try that Nerf gun. As a kid, we really enjoyed the Sears, Penneys, and Wards Christmas catalogs. Times have changed.
