Fall Is In The Air

It’s September, we’re getting ready for the Bellville Street Fair and fall is definitely in the air.

The morning weather report has our high temperatures in the mid-60s and the lows in the mid-40s next week! With the days getting shorter and cooler, the trees will begin putting on their fall colors. Some already are changing, especially the maples.


The Bellville Street Fair is big time around here … we’re celebrating the 164th year! All of Main Street is closed for the midway and the vendors and, of course, the animal tents. Here are some photos taken in the early 1900s of our Main Street during the Fair.

Ginnie, I don't think we have any fairs that are street fairs in Nebraska. They are on designated fair grounds usually by the biggest city in the county. It looks like a real fun time as long as it doesn't rain. ***** The weather is acting kind suspiciously hinting that this winter might be another bad one. Although, I don't heat with wood it still causes me concern and to save back a little extra cash for those expensive months. ***** Have a great street fair day.
