Scenes from the 2008 NC Gourd Festival

Notice the darkness of the first few pictures? A storm off the coast took out our power for four hours on Saturday morning! But, that didn't stop our gourdageous judges from doing their duty! Flashlights at the ready they fared forth to do their daring do. When the lights came back on it looked like the Good Fairy had been present and leaving ribbons wherever they were due.
