Weekend Fun: Tractor Square Dance at White River Valley Antique Show

Have you ever seen tractors square dance? If you look real close, you will see that the tractors are dressed up. Some of the tractors have pants hanging on the side and some have skirts. This is what rural folks do for fun. 

You will have to excuse the shaky camera. There was a light drizzle and I was holding my umbrella in one hand and my camera in the other.

After, the tractor square dance we watched a sorghum making demonstration. As you can see the horses are driving the press that squeeze the cane. 

Then, school was in session and we sat in on a demonstration of a one room school house. You can see Alexis standing in front at the black board. If you enlarge the photo you can see the Pledge of Allegiance, placed behind the teacher. The original Pledge of Allegiance was a little shorter than today's version.

Before leaving the antique show, we bought a bottle of home made root beer. I'm not sure what it was made from but it tasted like sassafras.

The next day we took Alexis to a Fishing Derby. It was for children 12 and under and they only had 1 hour to fish. Unfortunately, she didn't catch any fish because there were two turtles in the water stealing her bait.

At last years fishing derby, she caught 6 bluegill. Maybe next year will be better. Overall, we had a very good weekend.
