    Naw, just kidding. The sign says, "Eat WITH the Millers". But the "with" is in yellow, and from a distance you can't see that part of the sign.

    The Millers are good people who have good food. They have an indoor booth too. With stools. There are many stands to get some kind of food fix from.

    Favorite Dish: Burgers, fries, and hot dog sort of fare.
    Sausage sandwiches with all the goop!

    P.S. Make sure you buy some roasted peanuts while you're at the market. Located near the end of the first long shed. Let your nose lead the way...

    Can you believe my sister let her son by this three blade knive thingy?!

    What to buy: Not this! There are a few sword/hatchet/etc. dealers. Who buys this stuff? (besides my nephew) and why?

    So, you picked up a pony at the livestock auction! Stop here for your saddle.
    If you only want to pretend to be a cowboy, you can just buy the boots!

    There isn't any air-conditioning or heat, so on hot, humid days, the indoor sheds can be stifling! To avoid the crowds, come on Tuesday, Saturday is a wall-to-wall people press.

    Waiting patiently...

    Getting into and out of Cowtown is a mess! There are several parking areas and everyone is driving every which way. There are no traffic lights or rent-a-cops directing traffic, so be prepared to wait a good while to get out of this place. Anyone who travels Rt. 40 on Tues. or Sat. knows to slow down and drive carefully in this area. We are really quite courteous here!

    Yes, there are real live cows at Cowtown. They are way in the back, behind the second long shed. The livestock auction begins at noon. I did not buy a cow on this day...I get my milk at Wawa.

    Most people sit on the bleachers. Some bring lawn chairs, as there are a few grassy knolls back by the horse corrals. Not good viewing from there though...

    Equipment: If your fanny doesn't like hard surfaces, bring a whoopee cushion. Lots of people bring blankets to stretch out along the benches to save their spots! Before the show there are plenty of booths set up to sell trinkets, food and drink, so you might want to arrive early for that, or if you need a fanny break during the rodeo, you can wander around them then.

    Every Saturday night, late May through September, starting at 7:30 is the Cowtown Rodeo. It draws a big crowd, so get there early if you want a good seat. Tickets are around 10 dollars each.
    There's limited "box" seating.
