The Old Sorehead Trade Days is a festival which draws people from all over the region to Stanton for a carnival atmosphere of food booths and many vendors. In my opinion, not even the State Fair of Texas can match the variety of food offered here. Such West Texas favorites as turkey legs, roasted corn, gorditas and burritos, funnel cakes, lemonade, and much more are offered. I took along the camera this time to document some of the fun at the Trade Days.

1978 Grand Marquis at Stanton
Here is my 1978 Grand Marquis in the Trade Days parking field, across the railroad tracks from the Trade Days. The car really got a workout today with long distance driving in fairly warm temperatures.

Hwy. 80 in Stanton
This is US Hwy. 80 looking towards the west in Stanton.

Old Drugstore in Stanton
Here is one of the streets of Stanton with the Trade Days booths set up, and the Stanton Drug store which features a soda fountain.

Stanton food booths
One end of the row of food booths. The street was packed with people enjoying all of the carnival foods. Vendors usually set up in the same locations each time so you can easily find your favorites. Two of mine are pictures here: $1.00 freshly made lemonade, and roasted corn.
