It is the centerpiece of a fall celebration of culture weekend with Chokecherry Festival Saturday in Lewistown and Sunday celebrating What the Hay and the Utica Days Festival. This year featured nearly 60 entries. We had beautiful weather (low 80s) as we arrived in Hobson, picked up our ballots and set out for our country drive of fun and adventure. The drive took us about 2 hours considering photography, traffic, and a stop for lunch at the Oxen Yoke Inn. We took nearly 40 shots of the art that intrigued us. Here is just a sampling of those.
It was a fun day overall....except for the 1 pound burger my eyes told me I could handle for lunch in Utica. It was inevitable, but tomorrow we turn the wheels and head towards the Kalkaska Ponderosa......not in any hurry though.
