Oooh, I love a good fest!
I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin . . . dare I deem it the world capital of fests? We had Irish Fest, German Fest, Festa Italiana, Greek Fest, Polish Fest, Mexican Fiesta, Afro Fest (yes, they called it that), Pride Fest, and, perhaps, the best known, Summerfest.
So this girl knows how to throw a Fest!
Blogtoberfest is a blogging challenge wherein bloggers pledge to blog everyday (which I already do, mostly . . . unless a family member is running a fever or some other concerning thing occurs) and you have lots of fun, engaging activities. Any self-respecting Milwaukee girl (nevermind that I live in Maryland now . . . I have beer in my veins . . . er, that doesn't sound right does it) would have to get in on this.
So, it's Friday and the perfect time to Roll Out the Barrel of fun!
In the tradition of the wonderful festivals of my childhood, we will hold a raffle . . .
To enter? You must join as a follower . . . hey, you had to be at the festival to enter the raffle, right? So, come to the festival, grab a raffle ticket by becoming a follower . . . then enjoy the festival by roaming around, sampling the goodness (you know, actually READ some posts . . . a party in and of themselves!).
After a weekend of festivities, I will announce the winner of the raffle Monday evening, after 9pm EST (so you have until then to join). I'll do it old-fashioned-style -- draw the winner out of a hat.
So be sure you get your little snippet included . . . make yourself a lovely little follower tile (or leave it blank, if you really mean to) . . .
And you might win this:
Well, I don't actually have a picture of the item to show you yet. I will take an enchanting picture of said (or unsaid) item and then I'll be back and post it along with a charming description. Tune in tomorrow (Saturday, 10/3) for item details. Okay? Okay.
Until then, get yourself a good, festive snack and walk around a little . . . you just might see something you like.
P.S. Come one and all -- if you are good enough to join and lucky enough to win, I'll send your prize wherever you happen to be!
Ooooh . . . Ahhhhh!
