Oakland Museum 1807 Lawn Party
Near Colleen South of Lovingston, Virginia
Want some cake? They were dishing it up yesterday! This was at Oakland Museum’s 1807 Lawn Party & 200th celebration for Nelson County. Many of the folks there were dressed up in period costume much like that you’d see back in 1807. In the picture above, Kaleigh Smith, of Roseland / Piney River, was dressed in that kind of outfit. Be sure to look for more pics from there later today. We already have the video posted to the left in our video widget! Enjoy!
