Jonquils were in full bloom look very pretty. The jonquil festival was going well we dipped candles, rode in the horse drawn buggy, and watched the Black Smiths forge different items from metal. We ate at Williams tavern the buffet was great. And there is much more to see and do.
I visited Old Washington for the Jonquil Festival today. I always love the workers in their costumes and things. I will definitely go back sometime when the festival isn't going on. It's a great place to learn about history and different things.
