Our local farmer's market and Teddy Roosevelt day was Saturday September 17th. You see, back many moons ago, Teddy Roosevelt was visiting Fisk Farm here on Isle La Motte when the then president was shot. Needless to say Teddy had to cut his visit short and get back to Washington to take over as President.
Every year the Isle La Motte Historical Society and The Preservation Trust sponsor Teddy Roosevelt day with celebration all over the island.
There is apple picking and cider pressing at the local apple orchard. Hayrides and a corn maze for young and old. The local farmer's market or course. A parade with antique automobiles, horses, school children and of course Teddy himself on horseback (local resident).
We even have our four legged friends come out for celebration.
Local jewelry makers. Love her display..
Who doesn't love a bird house?

Marsh mellows dipped in white chocolate dipped in orange and black sprinkles along with fun Halloween sprinkles.
