Tour de Hay

For many years, Clarence and Bonnie Pittz have been painting a hay bale at their farm.  It’s a friendly pumpkin on the highway as you head toward Platteville.  This year, they added a sign “HAYLLO.”photo-39

Clarence and Bonnie have some company this year.  So far there are a dozen decorated bales around town, and there are more on the way!  We’ll keep you posted.

The owners of the Walker House, Dan and Kathy Vaillancourt, are offering a pasty dinner to the first person to correctly guess what theirs will be. So far, thirty-seven people have weighed in via Facebook (click here to like us on Facebook) with most suggesting it be a ghost, but that’s the one thing the Vaillancourt are not going to do. They are adamant that the ghost has left the building.

and the one that started the hay bales rolling in town – the Pig at TonHAY’s Tap –photo-83

We noticed that Clarence and Bonnie Pittz are the only ones to the mount their bale on a flatbed with wheels.  Maybe they know something we don’t about the removal process.

If there are others out there and you would like them added to this post, e-mail a photo to highstreetbeat987@gmail.com.
