You know its Autumn when the hills of the Ozarks being to look like a blanket of colors. You also know that fall is here when the War Eagle Mill Craft show opens. This year was no different, with the beautiful colors of the Ozark mountains as a back drop, the War Eagle Fair grounds became alive with sights and sounds and smells of of a greand event.
Refered to as the granddaddy of all Arkansas craft fairs,an event that should not be missed. 100's of vendors from all over the USA will attend to show their finest wares. Today my self, Bob and Bella our chow-chow decided to get an early start so as not to miss a single vendor.
Well we were not the least bit disappointed, lots of art work for Susie to explore and a cool creek for Bella to swim. What more could we ask for?
