To celebrate cream cheese they close the streets and have a festival downtown complete with a cream cheese mural, a giant cheesecake, live music and lots of fun games and competitions.

|Unveiling of the giant cheesecake (the line was really long and we didn't end up getting a piece.)|
|"The twins" got pirate hats. (they look cute as twins, don't they?)|
|Lined up for the milk tray obstacle course relay race.|
Here they are competing (Sorry the video is sideways. Not sure how to fix that.)
|They were slower than the team they were racing but they definitely brought back more milk!|
|The finalists were judged on speed and accuracy and the kids got 2nd place!! (and won $60!)|
|They also competed in a "Feed Your Face" contest where they had to feed their partner chocolate cream cheese (which is super yummy!) with pretzel sticks. They didn't do it very quickly though so they didn't win any more money.|

|As a "Thank You" for helping with clean up we got these free Cream Cheese Festival t-shirts :)|
The Cream Cheese Festival was a fun experience. I'm glad we could check it out. If we were still going to be living here next year I would definitely enter the cooking contest and be sure to get a piece of the huge cheese cake. Alas, next September we not be close enough to attend.
