Turkeyfest gets a bit moist

Oct. 9, 2011 at 5:09 a.m.

Jeremiah Vanzandt, 11, sits on the Himalaya ride as it spins backwards at Turkeyfest in Cuero. The carnival section of the festival was mostly devoid of attendants Sunday because of the rain.

As rain fell steadily throughout the afternoon, Cuero Turkeyfest 2011 was all but packed this Sunday.

The kids tractor pull went on as planned, but the carnival ride workers far outnumbered patrons and the "race your own turkey" event was canceled.

Despite the obvious polish, planning and live music that the festival offered, the weather proved to be the defining element.
