Originally meant to celebrate the opening of a Meridian creamery in 1929, Dairy Days has grown into what we got to experience this last weekend. I’d say this event was a massive success for everyone involved. Live music every day, parade, fireworks, beautiful weather, races, families, and of course the carnival! Happy screams, laughter, and people enjoying each other, welcome to peak humanity.
If you’ve ever wanted to eat the most incredible ice cream to stay cool while you wander from booth to booth looking at handmade art, win money for your family at a local credit union, expand your musical taste while people dance together – you couldn’t have asked for a better time and place.
Five of you were there for sure. Current Barrier customers and a former employee came by to say “Hi.” Greeting all of you certainly helps the days fly by. You all keep it fun and new! We gave away all of our toy bugs to the near-endless stream of beautiful families; some kiddos were scared, but many were ecstatic at the prospect of scaring their little sisters.
If you need a laugh and a good time in the sun with a fantastic community, look no further than Meridian Dairy Days. I hope to see you next year!
