JUST A NORMAL WEEKEND

Prescott, Arizona, is a magnet on hot summer weekends. This one is no exception as a big arts and crafts fair has set up for business on the Courthouse Square and thousands of visitors and probably even some locals have clustered there.


Residents of the baking hot desert cities to our south probably make up most of the visitors, enjoying somewhat cooler temperatures under the huge leafy trees on the plaza.


Local buskers show off their musical talents as they try to fill up an instrument case with donations.



Adding to the "state fair" atmosphere are the food booths, filling the air with savory aromas.




But it's not all burgers, barbecue and tamales. This year some newcomers have sprouted up to satisfy different tastes.





In the crowd of ballcaps and sun hats and sandals, some people are maintaining their individualism.




It's a fun day but all this walkin' and gawkin' makes a fellow tired.


I think I'll head for home and a nap.

Good idea?

I'm sure you picked the salad or the buffalo over those other high cal offerings.......
Looks like fun, and some nice boots.

You're a braver man than I ! Best time on The Square is 7 am on a weekday!

Not sure I'd care for the temperatures, but it looks like a festive day. The food vendors were especially appealing!

I did that a few weeks ago with Judy and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I didn't buy anything but I love walking around the square and taking in the sights.

I'm up for the Hawaiian shaved ice.

Looks about right. Good shots of those hatted people too.

Molly doesn't look so jolly under his tamale sign!

"You just keep thinkin', Butch, that's what you're good at."

He was cheerier a bit later when business picked up.

That San Francisco chocolate stand really grabbed my attention.
