Polk Salat Festival
Arab, Alabama will be having it's annual Polk Salat Festival on May 15th and 16th. What is polk salat? Well it is a weed that grows in the South that if fixed properly can be edible. If not fixed properly, it can be toxic.
But the festival isn't all about the plant, there is music, handicrafts, a child's play area and this year the folks organizing it have promised to have a mechanical bull there.
We will post pictures of the festival as we will be there for Four Aces Mercantile selling our crafts and creations of our friend. Bill is planning on wearing his Confederate Calvary uniform (at least part of the time as it is made out of wool).
Bill's SCV group held an encampment at the Albertville Museum this past weekend. On Friday more than 400 schoolchildren came through and learned what life was like for a soldier during the 1860s in the South.
