Somehow, the idea of going to something never gone to before intrigued me - Wes not as much. After all, it would provide a goal for us to complete at our work project, and we could eat lunch there, too.
So, we took a break and headed to Tumbleweed Park.
Much to our surprise, there was a huge turnout for this festival. We saw the parking fee alone was $5.00 and opted to walk from a distance instead - exercise, you know?
Once at the gate, there were lines forming at the ticket booth.
And wild rides to be viewed in the distance. This was a big deal! And $9.00 per person to enter. To pay $18.00 for just an hour break here seemed crazy! Besides, where were the ostriches?We walked around the fence to see if we could spot any ostrich action - this wasn't exactly how we imagined a festival celebrating ostriches should look like. But wait! There they are!!! Poor things are penned up and on the 6:00 news later that night we heard how they were racing these awkward guys. If you look closely, you can see that we finally found these attractive-challenged birds in a pen far from the ride action.
