This is my post for the Our World meme.  This meme is a second generation of My World Tuesday created by Klaus Peter and is hosted by five wonderful ladies.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

When we visited my daughter and her husband a couple of weeks ago, they took us to the Peach Festival in Lewiston, New York.  The Peach Festival was interesting, and is fairly typical of small-town American festivals.

One thing Americans like to do is eat, and the Peach Festival had a wide variety of different foods for just about every conceivable taste.  The Sweet Spot (above) had things for those with a sweet tooth.

This booth would have been as much at home in Louisiana as it was in New York. Peach Festival, Lewiston, New York. September 10, 2011.

Some places offered a wide variety of different foods.

I didn't see anyone ordering the Garlic Meatloaf Sandwich. Peach Festival, Lewiston, New York. September 10, 2011.

I’m not sure I want to try that Garlic Meatloaf Sandwich!

Barbecued turkey legs and corn on the cob. Peach Festival, Lewiston, New York. September 10, 2011.

Barbecued turkey legs and grilled corn on the cob are uniquely American treats.

Preparing Italian sausages. September 10, 2011.

The booth selling Italian sausages was busy preparing for a lot of customers.  The aroma started to make me hungry.

Peppers and onions. Peach Festival, Lewiston, New York. September 10, 2011.

Stir-fried onions and peppers were available as garnishes for the sausages.

Did you note anything strange about this visit to the Peach Festival?  There are no pictures of peaches.  I saw only one booth with peaches, and I didn’t get a picture!

    Looks like a fun visit. We have a Renaisance Festival near here and the commercials always show folks walking around eating on a turkey leg – it’s not very appetizing to me BUT the sausages, peppers and onions sound delish!

  2. 7aces/Darla Says:

    I was looking for peachy things! Strange huh? I would not be wanting to try garlic meatloaf either…

  3. Sandra Says:

    5.00 is cheap for a meatloaf sandwich, hubby would love it, not me, but he would, i would be hanging out the entire time at The Sweet Spot, love the building and what is in it.

  4. Karin Says:

    And my mouth was drooling because I thought there would be loads and loads of peaches! We have not had a perfect peach yet this year – 😦 Sounds like you had a lot of fun despite the lack of peaches!

  5. Snap Says:

    I really like small town festivals. They give you a hug! But no peaches at the peach festival just seems wrong! 😀 😀 I would have tried the garlic meatloaf … coming up on Halloween after all and might need the garlic to keep the vampires away! 😀 😀 Sounds like a nice tripl

    Before I got to the end I was wondering where all the peaches were. We have one here in Winona (less than 1/2 hour from Lewiston) with the most fabulous peach sundaes….

  7. Rose Says:

    I was looking for the peaches, but got so interested in the foods that I stopped looking. If I hadn’t just ate, I would be hungry from looking at these.

  8. Rajesh Says:

    Very interesting place. Wonderful shots.

    I should have had breakfast before I opened your post for the day! Everything looks delicious!! That is funny about only one peach stand at the Peach Festival!! Looks like a fun day, George, thanks for sharing it with us! I love your photos as always! Enjoy your day!

    I LOVE your train photo below, Betsy has one on her blog similar. Loving the black smoke and the white smoke together. So funny about the peaches, maybe there wasn’t much of a crop or they had been mostly been sold when you got there. Phil used to work in a peach orchard and would come home with fuzz in every crease of his skin! It made him very fussy about buying peaches. So what did you eat? Thanks for your help with the iPad, it has saved me a lot of time and confusion!!!

  11. Lesley Says:

    This is the kind of post one should not look at while hungry…
    Those turkey legs are massive!

  12. Donna Catterick Says:

    I agree this is not a post for the hungry! Wow, those things look good, even the garlic meatloaf!

  13. Pam Says:

    I was wondering when I would see festive peaches.. I guess its BYOP (bring your own Peaches:) There were plenty of other tasty treats to eat.
    Be well n happy George,

  15. Arija Says:

    Yep, I thought that was a bit funny considering all the food on offer. Personally, I would have liked to pig out on peaches.

  16. Busy Bee Suz Says:

    Garlic meatloaf sandwich? Lovely photos…and these festivals are the heart of America!!!

  17. mary Says:

    All of that food looks really tasty! Peaches have been great this year.

  18. sartenada Says:

    Peach Festival – wow, it sounds so nice and according to Your photos, it is surely. I also noticed “Garlic meatloaf sandwiches”. I was of course interested to the photo, because every year I visit in Germany.

    Thank You George presenting this post.
