This little shed lives tucked away in a small field near the nursing home just below the Court House.
This weekend, the Court House will be bustling with activity as we usher in the 39th annual Market Days. Although the festivities begin tomorrow, and school lets out at 1:00 p.m. just for this event, I probably won't get into the middle of it all until Saturday since I have to work.
There will be plenty of music, food (kettle corn, funnel cakes and BBQ, oh my!), arts and crafts, and as mentioned yesterday a 5K run on Saturday morning. I'll be the one wearing a crab hat (among others, I am sure).
Little known fact: The very first (and come to think of it last) time I ran in a Market Days race was back in high school. My mother organized it to help fund the track that envelops the high school football field. That was a long time ago, and the track hasn't changed much since then, sadly. I keep saying if I win the lottery, Mathews High School will have a new track and all new equipment.
But that's another story for another time.
Plus I don't play the lottery that often.
Still, it's nice to dream.
Anyway, after stuffing yourself with fried sugar and Lions Club BBQ all day, you can burn off some calories at the street dance Saturday night. It's always a fun time.
If you live nearby, I highly encourage a trip to Mathews Court House to experience Market Days.
Have a great weekend no matter what you're doing.
