The weekend proved to be great fun for all, our 4Th Annual Tent Event was a success. Time was spent making the shop look it's best.
Tammy at Wrights Farm supplied us with beautiful mums and Sal from the Inn At The Ridge loaded the sleds with pumpkins for the kids.
I hung the red, white, and blue,while Everett pulled out his now famous cow head.
The weather cooperated on Saturday but tested our limit with the heat and humidity on Sunday.
The library held it's book sale across the road and HiHo's own Susan Hill was leader and chief of the very successful fund raiser.
The HiHo tent had loads of personality with booths representing a wide selection of products.

Melinda and Martha from Widmark Farm offered honey tasting along with fun chit chat.

Humphrey worked with the town's dog warden and collected donations for local dog adoption.

Carol offered up a selection of mixed vintage items while requesting old favorites from the band.

There really was something for everyone.

Charlie gathered his assortment under the tent and along the fence.

Heidi of Tuthilltown Tots showcased her baby products.

Reina was up on her feet and going, going, going all weekend.

Mike Rice brought his friends to jam at the event. HiHo's talented extended family joined in... Claudia's husband Don played guitar and sang, even Aubrey got in on the act.

The pictures don't do the weekend justice...the girls at the barber shop cut hair outside under a canopy, people enjoyed pizza under the umbrellas across the street and the town had an energy that is hard to capture in a short blog. Thanks to everyone who pitched in to make it happen, building a strong sense of community in the hamlet is a magical thing...
