Ode to the NOTL Peach Festival

Today, I enjoyed a bit of a break
As I took in the Peach Festival at Niagara-on-the-Lake

It was the second visit to the festival for me
Cogeco was even putting it on TV

Even though the morning crowds were light in the town they used to call Newark
There was not a single place close by for anyone to park

Peaches were available everywhere, even on a truck
You could buy a quart, a basket or just one for a buck

Peaches were in every type of food
There’s one to fit just about any mood

Smoothies, tarts, pies and scones were in the group
There was even chilled peach and yogurt soup

Eating a hot dog with peach relish does not sound like fun
Nor does peach garlic dressing or peach-infused sausage on a bun

Pets were welcome if restrained by a piece of twine
But around food is the not the place to take a canine

The two-man band was playing without a frown
While the horses waited to take visitors around town

The going exchange rate was 20% for those paying with American dollars
This place that was taking U.S. money at par deserved some angry hollers

It was another interesting celebration of the peach
Summed up by these lines of rhyming speech
