Big Teeth Sculpture

Great Barrington, MA - I don't know if these are Paul Bunyan's dentures or teeth of a giant that once lived?

This is one of the sculptures that are displayed in the North of town.

Great Barrington MA - 250th Anniversary Parade

Great Barrington, MA - Today I attended the Great Barrington, MA's 250th Anniversary parade. It is late so I will post just a few photos. More tomorrow.

Noon...parade starting time.

Before the parade there was a beard contest. This fellow got the "Most Naturally Colorful Beard".

This is Iredale Mineral Cosmetics banner. Iredale is a year long sponsor of this event.

This is Iredale's float.

Before the parade I stopped by here for a nice grilled Kielbasa. Warning: the mustard has quite a horseradish kick...but so good.

The Barrington Brewery guys rolled this barrel down the parade route.

A somber fireman.

A cool firewagon. I like these old time fireman dress outfits.

This guy is a horse poop butler. His job is to walk behind a carrige and pick up the droppings.

Let's Samba.

Oooo...Ronald loves the ladies. Who knew he was such player.

Emerald Ash Borer Traps

I have been seeing these purple triangles hanging all over Connecticut and I finally found out what they are. The are sticky traps to catch bugs put out by the EAB Trapping Program. What they are looking for is the Emerald Ash Borer. I believe they are not in Connecticut yet, but they are on the look out for them.

A trap hung up high.

These labels are attached to the rope holding the trap letting people know what they are.

Housatonic Art League Summer Show 2011 at Dewey Hall

Sheffield, MA - I saw a sign for a FREE Art Show so I stopped in.

The art show is in Dewey Memorial Hall 91 Main Street (Rte. 7) Sheffield, MA. The juried show is open from June 30 - July 31, 2011. Hours are Daily 10am - 5pm, Fridays open until 6pm, Sundays 1pm - 5pm. There is also a Member show August 4 - September 5.

A note about the hall. It was built in 1887 to honor Orville Dewey who was born in Sheffield in 1794. He was a Unitarian Minister who preached in Boston, New Bedford, and New York. When he retired to his farm in Sheffield he founded the Sheffield Friendly Union Library Association. When he died, his family raised $10,000 to build the hall in his honor.
