Middle Tennessee Strawberry Festival in Portland

Slugburger Festival in Corinth (MS)

162nd St. Patrick Irish Picnic & Homecoming in McKewen

The next RC and Moon Pie Festival is June 18 in Bell Buckle, Tennessee.  We haven’t been since 2008, when Shug was a baby.

We put an RC and Moon Pie on Shug’s stroller just for a quick pic (if you’re wondering: no way would I let my baby have a soft drink — he’s 8 now and still has never had any):

…but got such a kick that Moon Pie tweeted this with his picture last year!

A Louisiana city councilman has been arrested for allegedly stealing a banana moon pie (when approached about it, he flashed his badge and threatened the store owner). The public responded by showing up to council meetings and bringing moon pies with them.
