Travel Tips for Suffolk

Peanutfest 2002

by soccergrrl

"Peanutty"

The official mascot of Suffolk's Peanutfest is Peanutty. He's . . . well, he's a person in a peanut suit. This photo was taken at the peanut butter sculpture contest and the crowd was thick (harhar).

One of the highlights of the festival is the peanut butter sculpture contest. Each "celebrity" contestant is given a block of peanut butter, some gloves, and a knife. They then have a certain amount of time to create a work of art. Finally, the sculptures are judged and a winner chosen. The contestants are the winners of the Peanutfest beauty pageant plus other local VIPs; this year the mayor of Suffolk participated (and made a horrible and tasteless--no pun intended--sculpture of a plane crashing into two office buildings). During the sculpting, this incredibly annoying local radio guy makes chatter about what's going on.

Here is the winning sculpture--Mr. Peanut, with a "25" on the table next to him because this year is Peanutfest's 25th anniversary. This sculpture was our favorite, too!

Here is the peanut shell graveyard (my brother-in-law Larry is adding to the pile). What is it and why is it here? Who knows . . . it's close to Halloween and there certainly is no shortage of peanut shells. See the cup he's holding? They hand those out, full of peanuts--as many as you want.

Mr. Peanut is NOT the only giant nut there.

The giant peanut actually marked a kids' stage. The two hosts are wearing peanut hats, which is something you don't see every day. When the show was over I tried to get my sister and brother-in-law to go up and put on the hats so I could take a picture--but they wouldn't cooperate.

In spite of the weather, we continued a new family tradition by spending another memorable afternoon at a fabulously hokey festival.

Only in America . . .
(What can I say--the sun came out, the flag was waving in the breeze!)
