The Dirt Cheap Cow - Mexican Pottery and Furniture/Garden Store
This is a festival they have in Santa Clara the last weekend of every Sept. (That's the town next to mine, where a terrific old-fashioned fruit stand is.)
The Swiss settled the town in 1854 and because of this they have Swiss Days with parades and a street faire, etc and everyone paints cows and puts them out. They are everywhere - all over town. I took a bunch of pics and thought I'd share some of them with you. The residents in this town really get into the spirit of things.
This one was on a sreet corner in town
Some businesses put their names on the cows - this one even has a huge milkshake
This one was in someone's yard and is ready for combat - notice the boots
There's always a camouflage cow
I thought was cute - in someone's front yard
Here's a mom and baby on a street corner
Here's one ready for a backpacking trip.
You get the idea. The entire main street in this little village is like this. There's probably 20 or thirty cows every half mile.
Does anyone know of another place like this?
