It seemed a rather ordinary day, for a Saturday.
I grabbed my purse and umbrella and off to the bus stop I went hoping for a Saturday adventure
of the extraordinary kind.
I paid my bus fare
and took a seat,
then the city bus carried me south on Division Street.
till finally we were at Garland,
then I had to get off.
For, what to my wondering eyes should appear?
But a yellow brick road...
and Garland Street Fair!
|Follow the Yellow Brick Road!|
There was a lot to see...
and a lot to do.
Have a look at my pics and you'll enjoy it too!
|Ruby Slipper...Tinman Too. The Art School|
|Here is an artist at work.|
|Hoola Hoop Girl Busker|
For young and for old....
It was the Wizard of Oz story...
told and retold.
|Cowardly Lion... Scarecrow.... Tinman Bean Bag Toss Game.|
There were face-painting princesses,
and various games one could play...
Here a ticket, there a ticket.... what a fun day!
|Prizes won from playing games.|
There were fashion shows everywhere.old fashions and new...
Fashions for people... and Toto's too!
Costumed creatures, musicians....
Sausage, popcorn, pop and pizza,
(the kinds of things that go straight to your (my) waist!)
The planners of this event left no rock unturned...
there were freebies galore,
sports bottles, first aid kits, bibles and more!.
When the day was over I went my way,
Thinking to myself,
"This was a great day."
Back at the bus stop,
I tried clicking my heels,
and lickety split... wouldn't you know it!
Along came a bus with four wheels!
birds fly over the rainbow,
why oh why......"
Hey, that reminds me of a chicken joke...
Why did the chicken cross the Yellow Brick Road?
