Today, for a change, I enclose a picture of the Texas Rice Festival in which we participated yesterday, and I want to share with you. New experience. We were never on such a festival. I enclose a few photos from the festival returning to images of holidays in Europe. I hope you will like them.
The Texas Rice Festival is an annual harvest celebration held the first weekend of October honoring rice farming, which is a major economic activity in the region of Southeast Texas around the town of Winnie, Texas. It's held in the Winnie-Stowell Park. The first Texas Rice Festival was held in downtown Winnie in 1969. The event is now a week-long event held in Winnie-Stowell park which has a permanent grandstand which was built for the event.
The festival includes a carnival, two parades, livestock show, longhorn show, open horse show, BBQ cook off, nightly street dances, antique car show, rice cooking contest, pageants, and features food made with rice and flavors of the Cajun culture which is strong in the area. Typical fare includes rice balls, gumbo, ettouffe, pistolettes, blooming onions, crab balls, boudain balls, funnell cakes and many other delicacies. The event is renowned for its outstanding cuisine.

Bet you had great fun here Barbara.Good photograph with some interesting detail and colour. I presume the guy at the back with the shovel is there to clean up any mess that may occur?

Bonsoir, chère Barbara,
Je suis pour que les traditions perdurent. L'histoire d'un pays, d'une région, doit conserver ses us et coutumes pour que les plus jeunes se souviennent.
Très belle présentation d'ensemble.
