Germantown Festival

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all." ~ Stanley Horowitz

Saturday afternoon my friend Jean Ann and her daughter, Ellen, took me to one of their favorite fall events: The Germantown Festival in Germantown, Tenn. There is perhaps no better place to experience the sights, sounds and smells of autumn than at a community fall festival. This one boasts more than 400 arts and crafts vendors, along with live entertainment, children's rides and games, a car show and the crowd-pleasing "Running of the Weenies" Dachshund Races. Enjoy this mosaic of color from some of my favorite craft vendors -- an inspiring feast for the senses and a sure sign that fall is on the way.

Still to come, a visit to the quaint neighborhood of Harbortown in downtown Memphis.
