New Harmony, Tobacco in Kentucky and Nut Club Festival

Stumbled across a small festival in New Harmony about the middle of September. 

This was a pretty good sized flag hanging over the street.

We were actually on our way to New Harmony State Park but stopped here instead.

A couple of weeks later - around the 1st of October - we finally made it to the park. It is located on the Wabash River south of New Harmony. 

Nice park but it was practically empty. There is a pretty large campground but again not many people there.

This picture is near the boat dock.

Took a drive through Kentucky just opposite Newburgh a few weeks ago.

This is a tobacco drying barn.

Here you can see the tobacco leaves hanging in the barn.

It is hard to get a perspective on this picture. It is taken from the door above looking diagonally up to the roof on an angle.

The barn smells like .... well tobacco.

This one is looking more or less straight up.

Looks like there are 6 levels of tobacco in the barn.

Not sure how they get them in there.

The tobacco comes from the field on the sticks or poles.

This is just a pretty scene along the highway near the Green River east of Henderson.

Now for something completely different.

These are shots from the West Side Nut Club Festival.

The what?

West Side Nut Club Festival

These 3 pictures are basically experiments.

Here is some more info on the festival.


I didn't take any pictures of the food booths. Must be over 100.

Basically fried anything you can think of - Snickers bars, KoolAid, Pepsi, hot dogs, etc. Yes, fried Pepsi.

Also, you can get the infamous brain sandwich there.

We went with pork tenderloins.

Another shot of the ride. I have some video of the ride in action. When I figure out how to edit it I'll post some footage.

Lots of carnival booths, also.

No link to the Nut Club itself. Google says their website seems to have been compromised by Cialis ads. You can try linking to it if you like. They do a lot of good work in the community.


Here is a picture of the house with a nice sunset in the background.

Here is a close up of the mums in the front garden.
