Bean Hole Bash 2018
Although the weather did not cooperate for this year’s Bash, the
beans were tasty and there were many activities to enjoy
throughout the event. A Friday night concert with the Mary
Fagan Trio did perform although thunderstorms were forecast and
was well received by those who attended. Here are some
scenes from this year’s event. Planning will begin in the
fall for next year’s Bash. If you would like to be a part
of the committee or help in any way be sure to check out their
Facebook page and website for additional information.
Starting the fire and keeping it at the right temperature for
overnight baking takes lots of dry wood and tending over many
hours before it is right for the bean pots.Volunteers were up
past the midnight hour making sure that the coals were just
right for great tasting beans many hours later.
traditional carrying of the beans requires many people working
together to bring the heavy pot to the fire pit and to the
tables for serving.
Drawings submitted by Northwood students for the coloring
contest made an attractive and colorful display under the tent.
