East Texas Yamboree

Brandon and I took the boys to the Yamboree in Gilmer last week. We watched the parade and enjoyed the greasy "fair food". It was our first time to attend the event and we were shocked at how many people were there.

Some of the parade floats were quite impressive for a small town parade. Here is one of the Yam Duchesses. We were told that the "Queen's parade" which was the next day was the one that was really over the top. Maybe next year we'll make that one so we can see the Yam Queen in person!

Here are my guys enjoying corn dogs and a funnel cake. The sausage on a stick and nachos have already disappeared!

I miss fair food! There are so many "festivals" around there that you can always find a "funnel cake"! Btw...about time you posted! I was going through Milam Family withdrawals! :)

I may have to mark this down on my calender next year! WOW...they are really showing off in Gilmer. Thankful the 4 of you were able to go and enjoy "expensive" & "greasy" fair food!
