Photo Review - First Friday Weekend PLUS The Blessing of The Combines - Snow Hill

Wow! What a wonderful weekend we had in Snow Hill, Maryland.

First Friday was a success and the 20th Annual "Blessing of the Combines" couldn't have turned out any better. 

There's something about these historic downtown events that we just can't get enough of. 

Maybe it's the shuffling of vendors and patrons bringing life to the streets, or the smell of a fried funnel cake wafting through the air. It's the sound of old bluegrass serenading the crowd, and children covered in sticky hot sweat and lollipop juice. 

The Blessing of the Combines is a magical experience that cannot be replicated, and we here at Maverick's Attic couldn't be more pleased and proud to be a participant this year. 

Here's a closer look at our weekend fun!

Vending a large event like this requires us to be there HOURS before hand to set up. After a late night out a First Friday, we needed lots of coffee to make our 6:30 am arrival on site for the Blessing.
