This weekend, we drove up to Bell Buckle, Tennessee for the RC and Moon Pie Festival. We got to see some of the contests – there was the RC dash, where contestants walk with cans of RC on their head, and the watermelon seed-spitting contest. All day, there were different activities: a race, people clogging, a RC-Moon Pie recipe contest, a wading pool play called “A Midsummer’s Nightmare” where GooGoo Cluster tries to steal RC Cola from Moon Pie (there’s a pic of it here), and towards the end of the day, the largest Moon Pie is cut into and served.
There were some special painted pieces for sale too – this table ($1800):
Gosh you know I *loved* those and they’ve inspired me to take out my paints and do my own thing. It’s great that a lucky someone is getting to take these home!
Daddy of course snacked on a RC and a Moon Pie. Shug is *waaay* too little to enjoy them, but daddy put them on his stroller tray just for a pic, and look at what Shug went after!
