Today is the first day of Neewollah, our annual Halloween festival (and the only one in the country!) Last night they crowned Queen Neelah (our version of the Corn Queen or Butter Queen or what have you) and tonight the rides open and the food vendors are touting their wares.
My mom and I decided to go and see what they had to offer. So we bundled up and headed downtown.
We happened to park right next to a vendor selling pecan rolls. That was torture.
They had these super cute little pots in the window with bread dough in them. I think the flower pot loaves were about $5? If they weren’t jalapeno bread, I woulda jumped all over it.
The Neewollah flags were flying everywhere.
This gal was making cotton candy, but for $4 a bag I wasn’t going to bite.
Caramel apples *drool*
More Neewollah flags, and my favorite cheese-on-a-stick joint. Go there every year!
They also sell corndogs and nachos. But I can get corndogs from sonic and nachos from the gas station, so I wasn’t interested.
They batter and deep fry your cheese of choice right in front of you. I picked American.
And then you get this… An ooey gooey stick-o-yumminess that starts sliding down the stick after the first bite.
Oh look… More caramel apples…
And grater taters covered in cheese.
You have to indulge in the prerequisite funnel cake.
Oh and get a caramel apple after they taunt you.
My mom begged and made me get her a pecan roll.
And I enjoyed my caramel apple.
Keep an eye out tomorrow for pictures from our Doodah Parade, the parade the adults in town get to be a part of
