I've been working on this post since July. Not last July - July, 2012. No, I'm not kidding.
Not because it should have taken that long to write, but because I keep going back to "America's Hometown", snapping a few more photos, and just keep adding them to this post.
My parents are visiting and it's been a cold and rainy week, so I haven't completed any projects to share with you, so I figured I might as well finally share America's Hometown.
The downtown area caters to tourists and locals alike, and hosts weekly, "Music Under the Stars" events in the summer. Everyone brings their lawn chairs and lines them up on the brick paved roads to hear folk, blues, country, bluegrass, rock n' roll, or reggae music.
My older two sons run a race each year called the Hannibal Cannibal, because the steep hill the runners need to go up toward Lover's Leap will "eat you up".
We love to attend the yearly Folk Life Festival. These photos were taken last year when my parents were visiting as well.
