This is the fall festival for Frankston, Texas, pop. 1200.
Frankston is a small East Texas town with a population of 1200 people. The Square Fair is the local fall festival held in October as the hot Texas air, just begins to cool.
The colorguard. As in most small towns the parade has a distinctive patriotic air.
The colorguard leads the parade.
The local veterans of foreign wars march with pride.
The local high school Homecoming King and Queen.
Floats represent different grade levels of Frankston ISD.
Of course this is my favorite, the Pre-K float.
My grandson, Jordan plays the part of a carrot, Notice the hand of restraint. He tends to get carried away.
Yep, there is no doubt that we live in Texas.
The Square Fair is a time for community pride.
A time for old friends to reacquaint themselves.
Kirk, my oldest (Neal) son's best friend in high school. He is the drama teacher at Frankston High School.
The last of the parade, leaving their presents.
Kids are a big part of the fair.
Old traditions meet the modern age. Cowboys need their cell phones too.
What would any community affair be without food. Some say Texans will fry anything but we do like our pies.
Craft booths on the square.
Krystal and my little carrot, Jordan. Baby Michael is along for the ride.
The crew, Krystal, Michael, Jordan (no pun intended), Abby, and in the background, Caitlyn.
If you get people together you need music and in Frankston that means country.
And if you get enough people in one place, you are sure to find a politician in the crowd.
By-far the favorite food of the fair was the "fried pie"
All good things must come to an end.
