Well, it is that time of year again. The festival is May 10th, 11th & 12th. I have heard that we won't have any poke sallet because of the late freeze. Anyone know for sure if that is true?

Maybe I will wander around downtown during the festivities and get a t-shirt; or go look at the neat old cars; or maybe the beauty pageant?

Wonder if there will be an auction this year? Any idea what bands will be playing?

Of all the things I miss about the big city of Gainesboro, I miss the Poke Sallett Festival most, this time of year. It was always the beginning of Summer for me. I havenít been in over 10 years.

Saw a flyer today...they are having the outhouse races again this year! They didn't have them last year..the year before they were hilarious!

Wish I had known sooner...I know a bunch of young men that might have been interested in entering!

today me and my friends met up at gainseboro elementary then when walked to the poke sallet festival for those delicious funnel cakes i was so upset i found out that the egg toss is tomorrow and not today they say them turtles comes out in the rain low and behold it's raining tonight and i'm out there looking for one of them there turtles...but my main excitement is the egg tossing contest, me and jamie win that every year. my grandma is a member of the silver threads but i'm so upset that they aren't having the quilt show this year. the main thing that i'm excited about is my uncle terry bob and his friends entering the outhouse contest...I HOPE THEY WIN!!!!
