The Porter Peach Festival is an annual family tradition for us. No matter how hot it is every July, we still can’t resist going to this sweet festival. Not too far out of Tulsa, we arrived at Porter and enjoyed peach cobbler ala mode and the parade of all things Porter Peaches.All kinds of booths are represented at this festival—businesses, pies, funnel cakes, wind chimes, dream catchers, tattoos, clothes and more. Inflatables and pony rides are in the “kids zone” as well as feeding the camel!
The houses and buildings in Porter have that old charm. The friendly neighbor saw us admiring her garden and camper and came outside to chat with us.The parade usually starts at 11:00 a.m. but we headed to the orchard to buy our pecks of peaches there and some huge watermelons, too! You have to eat your cobbler and ice cream quickly because it melts in the hot sun.Where else can you find apple butter, bushels and pecks of peaches, veggies, fruits, cake batter AND a parade and festival going on?
Every year, when we return from the peach festival, we cut up the peaches to make cobbler and pies to serve with vanilla ice cream later that night with family. Annually, I try a different peach recipe from the internet. For us, mid-July, we always look forward to our peaches ‘n cream!
