Herrin Festa Italiana

In Herrin, IL last weekend, a fair took place. It was in the small, Southern Illinois town of Herrin. My boyfriend is now the Carterville/Herrin Newspaper official photographer, so I hope to be able to post a few of his pictures here soon. It was more of a carnival with rides and fair food. The claim of Italian Oriented was pretty much contained to their Bocce Ball tournament rather than the food one might expect from the name. But if you have kids, it is always fun to be able to take them to a carnival with rides and lots of other kids. They had live bands every night and one included Kansas.

Luckily for everyone, the rain stopped in time for Sunday night and there were TONS of people in attendance, so it was nice for Herrin to host an event such as this.

The best part, I believe, was these two monkeys, Popito and his sister. They were amazingly adorable, and their mommy sews them clothing! They kept eating those little suckers and were so cute!!

Their website is HERE to get more info for next year.
