It is that time AGAIN ! The 11th annual
      Buttercup Festival
takes place this Saturday-APRIL 2nd from 10:00am-4:00pm in the historic district of Nolensville.
   Debbie and I have been busy changing the stores all around- merchandising everything outside and attending meetings to offer a fantastic day in Nolensville. The stores will be full-the village will be alive with vendors selling their wares-artisans of all kinds. All those fabulous food vendors that you can only find at festivals-ie grilled corn on the cob-locally made BBQ that sells out by early afternoon-shaved ice, funnel cakes and of coarse fried oreos ! I am dyeing with anxiety.
   Many of historic Nolensvilles landmarks will be open for free tours. The Nolen/McCord home that is being restored by Alfred and Evelyn Bennett will be open for the first time. This home is the foundation of Nolensville. It was the home of the Nolen family of the 1700's that settled and established Nolensville. The beautiful exposed logs inside are a must see. To imagine those logs have been formed as a home since the late 1700's is just astonishing.
   The historical society will have many free activities for kids including getting to meet "Buttercup" the cow-a artificial cow with simulated utters so that children can see what it feels like to milk a real cow. Live goats and possibly other small animals will be there for the kids to see.
    Local entertainers will perform throughout the day including the Elite dancers as well as bluegrass music-all of which is FREE !
    Merchants will have special sales so don't miss out on this wonderful tradition in our great small town.
