We are from a small town (population 607), so we love and appreciate small towns and small town festivals. While camping this past weekend, we drove though Martin, GA (population 311 based on what we could find out) and stumbled on their fall festival. What a terrific event and we thought we would share a couple of pictures:

Requiem for a Rabbit
May 21, 2023
A poor bunny made a bad decision, so I wanted to pay my respects with a requiem for a rabbit. My dogs plotted their own event.

Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
I love finding things like this…how neat!
I love Martin too!
You were very close to us!
Those remind me of the summer festival in my moms hometown 🙂

I love it when we come across things like this, it is cool seeing events going on in other towns.
Well, that last pikhture would be more perfekht with some SIBES working!
The small towns always do the nicest things. Our Dad comes from a small rural town and they always have great fun and festive times. Those Big Dogs are beautiful.

Very lovely. Someday we hope to move to a smaller town. Our town used to be small but has grown so much it feels like a big city now.
Woo! those are some really really big pups!

My comment was supposed to say “not *that* small”!
It looks like fun! Our town is small but not small! No dogs in this post? A travesty…
Wow! I thought our town was small at 3k. Love this – it’s a perfect little slice of small town America.
How big were those big dogs? Our Mom is trying to decide what breed they are.

It’s what I love about living in our small town! Every year our town festival has the best parade. And yes, we do occasionally see horses just being ridden down the street. That picture is great!
yes it is! I thought I lived in a small town now… really the villages here in CH are, um, well, let’s just say in MY town the main attraction is the post office. there’s a restaurant too somewhere but i can’t find it. but that’s it.
Looks delightful. In the UK small towns often have Gala Days – usually in the summer months. They are always lots of fun.
