Yesterday we attended the Music and Molasses Festival at Ellington Agricultural Center in Nashville. If you are from this area or will be visiting the museum at Ellington is always a fun place to visit. We got acquainted with Ellington Ag Center several years back when my father became a member of the Ag club and then BDJ went on to work there as a gardener all through high school and Mini has worked the festival in years past.
Music and Molasses offers a little something for everyone. It is billed as a country celebration of the harvest season. One of the most popular things to do is taking a ride in a mule wagon. It seemed a little strange this year since my Grandfather usually brings his team and wagon and spends the weekend giving rides. He is 89 now and this year finally sold his horses and mules and wasn't able to enjoy the festival. There are many interesting demonstrations like blacksmithing and sheep shearing.
