Dairy Days...yes, it's a thing! :)

If you're from the midwest, particularly from Wisconsin, you probably know all about Dairy Days events that take place in your town! For those not so familiar, here's a quick synopsis of what happens, at least with ours here in Platteville WI

Opening day is always on a Friday. September 8th is the date this year, and runs through Sunday. 
Events can include a variety of things from music, flea market, truck pulls, parade, and more! Plus I heard we have cow pie bingo this year...if you don't know what that is, you probably don't really want to know! ;)
