The fine art of making a snowcone.

A few more photos from Rock the Quarry yesterday, and two young ladies in pink waiting for their rainbow snowcone.

The making of snowcones is a family affair for the woman in charge here; I didn’t realize when I ran out to the snowcone truck when it came around my neighborhood I’d meet those same people again one day as an adult.

How Did They Get It There?

A fairly large flag hangs on the highwall of the old limestone quarry, above the quarry pond, along the Panhandle Trail in Walker’s Mill, near Pittsburgh, PA. Today the event was “Rock the Quarry XII”, an annual two-day community event that also raises funds for the trail development and maintenance. The trail runs along an abandoned railway line and through the older part of a limestone quarry (part of it is still quite active), and the festival has music and food vendors and games for visitors.


Rock Concert By Sticks

Rock Concert by Sticks

Those of a certain era, say that out loud, especially the word “Sticks”…

I couldn’t pass up this pun.

Hmmm…keyboards, amps, guitars, a drum set—it’s just kind of funny to see them on the leafy ground near the limestone cliff at the quarry pond.

This is from Rock the Quarry along the Panhandle Trail in Collier Township this weekend. The next band is getting organized backstage while one is performing on the stage.
