This weekend promises to be super fun as Owensboro's First Annual Sunflower & Pickle Festival takes place on Saturday.

WHERE'S ALL THE PICKLE FUN

The festival is happening at The Cottage on Hwy 56.  Marlena Knight and her husband, David own Knight farms on Highway 56.  The Cottage is a sweet and welcoming old farmhouse with a going to grandma's house feel on the west end of Daviess County.

When Marlena first opened The Cottage she said she wanted to bring the community closer together and she has been doing that with fun events and activities at The Cottage.

It will take place from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. on Saturday, and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday.

WHAT TO EXPECT

I had the opportunity to chat with Marlena about the festival and she told me it is going to be a blast.  There are three different Sunflower patches where you can roam and take photos.  They will have a scavenger hunt set up in the sunflowers as well.  It's a time to come and enjoy the end of the summer in the best possible way making memories with your friends and family and the folks at The Cottage.

PICKLED EVERYTHING!

If you love pickles prepare your tastebuds.  They will be pickling everything in sight.  From Fried Dill Pickles, Pickle Popsicles, Pickle Corn Muffins, Pickle Popcorn, Pickle Juice Shots, Pickle Cotton Candy, and a variety of canned pickles and pickle dips.

OTHER ACTIVITIES

On Saturday there will be a Pop N' Paint Class if you want to find your creative side or just get totally messy with paints.

Our family visits The Cottage quite often and we love getting min muffins or having lunch together and just hanging out.  They have a quaint little coffee shop and the best caramel bars on this side of heaven.  These kids always ask if we can visit.

Retro Camper Weekend at Diamond Lake Campground and Resort

If you visited Diamond Lake Campground & Resort over the weekend, you may have felt like you traveled back in time. It was Retro Camper Weekend and there were some classics on site.

The Food and Atmosphere at Hawesville's Riverview Restaurant

Riverview Restaurant has been in Hawesville since the 60s. But it has a new owner in 2021 and big changes are coming to the tiny restaurant. We got to go in and sample some of their offerings and check out the incredible view. Oh, and the homemade pie... is... delightful! It's definitely worth a trip to Hawesville to check out this amazing eatery! Visit them on Facebook or just stop in at 2220 Indian Lake Dr, Hawesville, KY, and enjoy.
