The hoedown is a highlight of the summer here at Kellystone Park. I was allowed to close the store 2 hours early in order to get dinner and enjoy the band. I missed the kids' games of frog racing, tug-of-war, and egg-tossing and I'm sure they were fun for the kids!
The band, called Senior Moments, consisted of a couple who are related to the Kellys. They played for whatever amount was put into a passed hat. Their songs consisted mostly of old church favorites and hymns, and it was weird for me to see people dancing to those songs. I even got out there with Tyler and danced hillbilly style! I wore a scarf around my neck and a cowboy hat to try to play the part.
