It's that time again

Join Doug Quick (my personal favorite weather person) and the rest of the folks in Carmargo for this year's WOOLLY WORM FESTIVAL on OCTOBER 4, 9-to dusk.

You can click here to get a brochure detailing all the times and events.

What? You say you don't know where Carmargo is. Just get on 130 out of Urbana and keep going south. When you pass through Villa Grove (observing the speed limit because it is a place known for speed traps) you will know that you are ALMOST there.
