My sister in law asked me this weekend if 8 months after the fact we were still happy with our decision to move to Rush City. i told her without any hesitation–yes! There are so many things I love about this place, our farm itself, with the family that live here, love and grow here, the beautiful trails, trees and scenery, the fact that is is close to some of our favorite spots and now the community we are discovering here. This last weekend was the 10th Annual Rush City Music and Art Festival. It happens the 3rd week of August every year and we are already looking forward to next year. Maybe we will even exhibit.
There was of course music. My favorite was “Brat Patrol” and there 80s retro music. So much fun.
For the kids there was free face painting and
a free bouncy house.
I loved the pottery demonstration by Ruth O’Hara. She learned her trade well from Robert Briscoe and had some beautiful pieces. More on this for Friday.
There were also some wonderful quilts, food and community organizations represented. Oh and the highlight, fireworks! Yes some times small town living is great.
