Revised Website

     I have been working on re-doing the Martinsville Heritage Days website.  The Festival will be held June 10-12 this year.  It has taken much time and several 'live chats' with technicians to finish the website, but I am pleased with the results.  Check it out:  As plans for the Festival are finalized I will be adding a detailed schedule on the Festival Schedule page.

     Here are a few photos I took of the Draft Horse Show last year.  For more photos of last year's event see this blogpost.

Blue Ribbon Farm has been the North American Classic Champions for the last two years.  Their black percherons were magnificent!

     I hope you are planning to come for this great festival.  Last year's Draft Horse Show was spectacular but it will be even more so with the addition of the North American Classic Draft Horse Cart competition.  Also, a Horse Farming Exhibition has been added on Saturday morning before the Show begins at 1:00 so it's going to be a super event  Lisa Banga will again be announcing the Show.  She is in great demand as an announcer traveling all over the U. S. and Canada.  She was the announcer this year at the Classic Draft Horse Six Hitch finals in Oklahoma, so we are very fortunate to have her back.  Her commentary makes the show so much more interesting and helps explain the work involved in showing these magnificent animals.
     And then of course all the food vendors, artists & artisans selling hand made creations and the other fun things included in the Festival will make Heritage Days a great family weekend.  To top it off--it is all FREE!
