39th Annual Oyster Festival York PA

OysterFestivalHeaderDesignwithtag

Today was a day full of York heritage and the funky smell of oysters. Dale and I took Tesla, Blaine and Andrew to the Agricultural and Industrial Museum to celebrate the amazing heritage here in York County. The museum is huge and today, it was crowded but we managed our way around to check out as much as possible.  We also tasted the oyster sandwiches, macaroni & cheese, pulled pork sandwiches and many of the homemade sweets.

We had a great afternoon and learned a good deal about the agricultural and industrial businesses of York. I had no idea oysters were so popular in York! ~P.
