March of the Penguins - Sonoma

Every year at Cornerstone Festival of Gardens in Sonoma I look forward to their humorous holiday exhibition extravaganza.

This year they have added marching penguins to their hilarity.

I wasn’t able to catch a photo of the catapulting snowmen, but I plan on returning because the image is just too funny.

Imagine hundreds of 4 foot tall plastic snowmen marching over a hillside and lining up in back of a giant , I mean huge, bright red rubber band fashioned as a catapult.
Several of the snow men have taken flight OVER and ACROSS the hiway and have landed in the vineyard.
These snowmen have very keen acrobatic skills.

Usually the traffic whizzes by at 50 miles and hour but the snowmen have slowed traffic down to a crawl as people roll down their windows, point their shaking fingers and laugh out loud.

If you do visit Cornerstone this holiday season you will be pleased with the many wonderful home and garden gifts galore.

Oh. my. goodness. The look on the penguins' faces are hilarious! Now this is something that's helping me with my "Christmas is here?!" denial!

Too funny! How much fun that must have been to come up with their holiday display! Do you remember what the "themes" were for years prior?
