Germantown Pretzel Festival - 2010

 This is the weekend of the 31st annual Germantown Pretzel Festival. Both Saturday (09/25) from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday (09/26) from noon to 6 p.m. the festival will enjoy bright, sunny skies at Veterans Memorial Park.

 We were there for the 10 a.m. opening ceremonies and enjoyed listening to Dayton Daily News columnist Dale Huffman  speak. Then the Valley View High School band played (below).

 I don't remember better weather than this. It was cool (low 60's) during the opening and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Even the bees, which have a field day at outdoor events in the fall, seemed fewer. The park is full of booths this year.

 We bought a couple of pretzels (of course!) and Mom bought three loaves of homemade bread. That's our usual purchases at the festival.

 Miss Molly's Bakery & Cafe (from Farmersville) had a booth set up near the entrance (just to the north of the fire station). That's the place to get great baked goods.
 There's entertainment beginning at 12:30 p.m. so perhaps we'll go back. Check out more details of the event by clicking here.
