Four-year-old Charlie Meadows had already eaten popcorn and ice cream and said he might have some of his mom's funnel cake.
He paraded around the main stage patio with his parents, carrying a green cardboard fan and a Y-shaped branch.
"This is my walking stick," he said, using it to point out the booths.
His opinion about the festival was firm.
"It's so fun," he said.
