And this guy Choo Choo ?? was a trolley tour guide too.

A hay ride around Mudville was also a popular mode of transportation for kids of all ages, offered by Breezy Hill Farm and the Kramers.

Jordan Hall was the place to visit for a bowl of chili, or a scoop of ice cream, a cannolli or cookies or a toss of the bean bag for a prize from the Knights of Columbus..

Love the tree at Blair Square. You know what would look really great? Lights on the 8-arch bridge. Little white lights around all the arches and across the top.
