Western themed art, artisans (metal, wood, cowbone, etc.) along with popular whiskey tasting this afternoon at Plaza Palomino. Pony rides and drawings as well, with a silent auction and jumping castle. Lots of folks in Cowboy gear including yours truly. Nice to see the Village Blacksmith Jerry Harris selling his metal artwork.
