Brethren Festival

My ex and I used to go to a lot of country fairs tucked away in small towns. I was inspired a lot by their weirdness. The weirdest one of all was put on by central PA Brethren In Christ churches, which was set in the mountains and a little weird to access. (Brethren are also known as Dunkards, which are Anabaptists with roots in Mennonite tradition.)

Needless to say, a religious fun fair in the mountains was both charming and surreal.

These were photographed in 2012 or 2013; I can’t remember offhand.
