Mule Day 2008
The 3rd Saturday of September every year is Mule Day in Winfield, Alabama. Mule Day when I was little girl was a parade, arts and crafts and people clogging and playing blue grass music, but now it is a weekend event. Friday night starts with Mule Night Madness. All the stores in Winfield are open, and what my kids like best is the carnival. Saturday is still the parade like it has always been with lots of good food and arts and crafts. There is also a Civil War re-enactment on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This year we went to all activities. The kids went to the carnival on Friday night while I shopped. We all went to the parade with Brian and Erin. Erin had never been in Winfield for Mule Day so she was in for a treat. Sunday the kids and Trey went to the civil war re-enactment with Tommy, Meg and Davis. We had a great weekend. Mule Day is a great family weekend in Winfield. I just don't know where all the people come from to attend this annual event.
