So at first I thought that the best thing at the festival was seeing my daughter's face light up when she saw the Cinderella carriage pumpkin.... but then
I saw the Keene Free Press newspaper box on Main Street.  You have to to love that!

Friggin' cold but still had a great time.

We liked the cinderella pumpkin too.  I saw one that said MVP and wondered if Sandy did it?  ;D  We ran into Julia and Wayne.

Castle Chaser is Mrs. Dreepa?

Nope, Mrs. Orvanic.

I have to agree with the bride...Keene looked great yesterday!  The town puts on a heck of a party.  Thanks to all who made it happen.

We left around 5:00.  The traffic on Rt. 101W was backed up for miles.  How were the fireworks?  I tried, but couldn't find a webcam of downtown.

Friggin' Boston:

Wow, a city of 600,000 (metro area of 4+million), can get more people together than a town of 24,000. Who'da thunk?

My sisters parked near the college for 12 bucks. They walked up one side of Main and down the other, saw all of the pumkins, some shops, had a good time and left.  If they had followed my advice and gone to Peerless and endurred the bus, they might not have had as good a time.

 Perhaps next year we can stash a couple of return cars downtown, preferably for free,  someone can drop folks off and come back to town on the bus.  We can all return in the stashed cars.
