A dash into the PA Dutch Fest at Reading Terminal

I got out of my apartment early for a Saturday morning today. I hiking down to the Massage Arts School, only to discover that the student with whom my appointment had been made had been taken to the hospital. I took advantage of the fact that I was up and out to wander through a couple of stores at the Gallery and then hit Reading Terminal Market. The Pennsylvania Dutch Fest was going on, and I had to stop at the corner of 12th and Filbert to allow a cart led by a team of miniature horses to pass. Set up in the middle of the Market was a rectangle of tables, with women frying doughnuts, serving chicken pot pie samples and distributing cups of lemonade.

I was there to buy a rosemary plant at Market Blooms so I didn’t stay long, or take a ride on either of the horse-drawn carts. Had I had my camera with me, I might have stayed longer to wander and watch, but I had made the decision to leave it home when I though I was getting a massage. If anyone has pictures of the Festival, we’d love you to add them to our Flickr group.
