A big hit in our booth this year was the “What Is It” Display and contest. Lots of folks participated in guessing what all the odd looking tools were used for. Sorry I couldn’t help you out, I didn’t know the answers either! :)

Look who stopped by to say hello! It’s Towmater, or a homemade version of him, from the animated movie Cars. Chuck Pelley of Wheatland, Iowa, built the Towmater.

These kids were learning all about rope-making in the Log Village area on the south end of the grounds. At Mt. Pleasant, you can find continuous living demonstrations like this, plus rail-splitting, soap-making, blacksmithing, rug weaving, and much more.

I’ve had the fun experience of sharing the sights of the show with my parents in the past, and this year my youngest son joined me. It’s truly a great family show!
