Were you at the Dairy Princess block dance? We were!

This year St. Lawrence County celebrated the 50th anniversary of its Dairy Princess tradition. Traditionally, the parade and festival are on Saturday, but by Friday noon vendors and organizations are pretty well set up, and downtown begins to orient toward the village park.

Friday night, there's a street dance, and this year a classic car show. Park Street was closed for a couple blocks between the park and the library/post office side of the street. We went. There were people everywhere: in the park, on the street, in the alleys, cruising parking lots for an empty spot.

I believe it's been 10 years that the local John Deere dealer has sponsored the street dance. That means BIG tractors, and little ones, that kids could climb into. And country music. Clusters of teenagers. Little kids running around and dancing (the evening starts with a Big Wheel race.) Clusters of teenagers. Lot of folks camped out in lawn chairs -- family groups and old friends catching up. Indeed it was an annual festival of all things dairy. Here's how it looked:
