There was a woman named Barbara in a lot of my design classes in college. I didn't realize it then, but she was very influential to me and my love of kitsch. She was super great and I wish we had kept in touch. I do remember her telling me that I HAD to get down to Rock City. And I did, more than once: 2009 (for our first wedding anniversary!) and 2012 (with the pugs!). But she told me the best time to see it was at Christmas. You can go any day of the week, but we had to go down on a Saturday because of Travis' job.
These lighted birds were pretty cool.
It was mostly this kind of stuff. Rocky the elf is so weird with his muscular legs and fat cheeks.
The line to get into fairy land caverns. Pretty cute.
