Apple-Butter Festival 2009

Posted in Qualitus : Habitus by chawnghilh on October 10, 2009


Once more in the Apple-Butter Festival—annually scheduled —held at Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. As for me, John Denver’s numbers to be played and be tuned in all along the narrow winding country roads in the West Virginia —and the old same Blue Ridge Mountain lying across the continent —in front, behind and side —as we change our driving directions! “Take me home, to the place … I belong West Virginia … ” OH MY …

Last year, at this time of year, we attended the Festival —parades and tableau displays were on the scene the whole forenoon! The Carnival was grand and many people thronged and graced this special occasion —which is held during the first/second week of October. Eats and drinks, outdoor kiosks/booths every where —and the Musical Bands all around! Country Music and Songs —you’d surely drink and dance! 

And, I already filled gasoline to appear again —October 11, 2009 would be a nice day, everyone of you can borrow my eyes again. I am trying to bring home many pictures, so that you can too participate in the Cyber-Festivities. In general, American WHITES do participate in this festival, it’s a kind of their Pâwl Kùt —I seldom saw any of the African-American!
