I'll say it again, I love living in a small town! Last evening was the Sites, Sounds and Tastes of Holly and everyone had so much fun. Huge tents were set up down one whole block and were filled with different area restaurants. You bought a block of tickets and could go to each vendor to sample their wares. YUMMY!!! I think our new Fire and Ice and Blackberry Bakery (same owners) must have been the best there. The townspeople packed our little village and everyone seemed to have such a great time. There were bands at the other end of the street (and even a belly dancer).

But down at our end of the street we had our very own music. Dan Hays set up and did he ever draw a crowd!!! He sings a variety of music from country, to soft pop, to old songs, and even a little gospel. He ended the evening with "God Bless The USA" in honor of the latest attack on our servicemen. If you ever need someone for an event you can contact Dan at you won't be disappointed.

Our little corner kept getting bigger and bigger crowds as the evening progressed.

Our own Zanie Janie (Simply Coffee) and hubby Steve danced in the street. (They taught dancing for 9 years and they are so much fun to watch!)

If you ever get to Holly, you won't want to miss the Blackberry Bakery and sample some of Barb's DELICIOUS treats.

So, that wraps up another fun evening in the village of Holly. Wish you all could have been here to play with us!

Until next time...
