Yesterday we drove up to Hawkinsville to the
Holy Ghost Festival also known as the annual Portugese Picnic.
The Festival begins with a parade to the church
complete with military honor guard
and the Queen of the Festival with her entourage.
Meanwhile the BBQ pit is emptied of all the roasts that
have been cooking since the night before.
and the kitchen staff is ready and waiting for the crowd....
Finally it's our turn to grab a plate and sit down to a delicious lunch!
It was a really great day- a slice of American Apple Pie day!
Wonderful pictures...so much fun.ReplyDelete
Great pictures. My step grandfather used to be the one tending the meat pit at the local festivals. He had amazing pots and pans. I remember sitting in them when I was a little kid. You've brought back wonderful memories, Thanks.ReplyDelete
