For the first time in months we actually had some cold weather (only 55 degrees and windy) and Dad (being the big brave tough guy he is said he didn't need a jacket but guess who was freezing by time we had walked around for hour!) We didn't really get to see everything but the Dweeb and I were certainly loving the cold. I must admit I was the ROCKSTAR of both events as
Sadly we didn't get a lot of pictures as Mom's hands were so cold she hated taking them out of her pockets to snap pics which I actually preferred cause it meant I didn't have to do any of that posing stuff she likes. These first two pics are of the Homesteaders Day where they had lots of demonstrations of everyday events from years gone by like wool spinning, shingle splitting, soap making, butter churning and so on.
At the end of the park was the Hardy Turtle Island Pow-Wow and we must say we enjoyed this a lot more. The Pow-Wow is actually a three-day event and includes traditional dance and drumming, a princess contest, as well as a trading area where Native American arts and crafts were sold. We were lucky enough to see some of the dancers and drumming and I must admit I didn't like the drums the first couple of times I heard them but once I got use to them they didn't bother me.And YES that was me woofing along with the singing - I was in fine woof !
