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 !
what a cool place (literally for your dad lol) I heard a bark at 0:11 was that one of you? I would like to see such a fair too, it's interesting how the peeps spent their days many moons ago.ReplyDelete
The Pow Wow looked very neat. So colorful! Sorry about the cold.ReplyDelete
Looks like a very interesting event. We have cooler weather now too but it is still sunny which is nice. Have a terrific Tuesday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
That looks like some serious fun !ReplyDelete
And I'm not surprised peeps wanted to fuss you two, you are very handsome guys !
Loves and licky kisses

We liked how the dogs barked along at the beginning of the drumming video.ReplyDelete
Oh Mom watched some of the playlist videos and she was enjoying your tree top walk. We don't think we saw that video before, butt Mommy says, what a precious video of you walking the dogs and great song to go along with the video.
You always find the most interesting places to walk. Naturally everyone want to pet your pretty fur me too!ReplyDelete
I heard your bark to the music.
Sounds good to me.
Arrrrrrroooooooo…. I loved da Paw-Wow pics.ReplyDelete
Oh that looked like a lot of fun. My mom cannot do cold (and we live in Iowa!!) because it does bad things to her leg and hand muscles...we understand also why dweeb felt that way, Maggie would have been hiding and barking.ReplyDelete
Mom enjoys going to Pow Wows around here. Bet it was fun getting lots of attentionReplyDelete

Very cool. My brother Jetta (boy sheltie) is pretty nervous too and sticks like glue to my mom.ReplyDelete
What an interesting trip!! We especially liked the Pow-Wow stuff!!ReplyDelete
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
We used to go camping every weekend, and our campground held an Indian Pow Wow. They were so much fun!ReplyDelete
And Ryder knows what you mean. Strangers are constantly walking up to him just to stroke his fur for a minute or two!
What a cool place, looks like a lot of fun was had! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
What a very much exciting and educational find THAT was... even if it was COLD... it was so WELL WORTH It...ReplyDelete
We loved the Video...
Wow, that is so cool! We would have loved going there. You should have told your dad that you were wearing a coat so he should too BOL!ReplyDelete
Murphy & Stanley
What a great FIND! SHE would have loved that....Bella would have been dweebish though.ReplyDelete
Oh how fun! I would love to see something like that.ReplyDelete
Monty and Harlow
what fun!!! Did you know my name means "trusted friend" in American Indian? Mom forgets what Tribe. Barks and licks and love, DakotaReplyDelete
Well Reilly, I think you might be part native american! You were really barking along well with those drums!ReplyDelete
What a fun day!
Crikey .... you stumbled upon a happening! Aren't they the best times. You're not expecting anything and you find a happening. That's what Mum calls 'em. We stumble across 'em all the time and like you we have a lot of fun. There were a lot of palefaces in that pow wow, aye??ReplyDelete
Its getting pretty cool outside here too. It looks like a wonderful day!ReplyDelete
Wow, you have some exciting things going on near your home! Love reading about your adventures.ReplyDelete
COLD??!! Holy cow patties! It's been 92 all week!!! Oh, how I wish for that kind of weather......ReplyDelete
Anyhu, wowsa!! What a FABulous time you guys had! I would have barked right along too Reilly! That's the fun of drums, huh?!
Sorry but Mom is laughing her you know what off right now because you were freezing and it was 55 degrees! Fun adventure though, and Dweeb was very brave I think. Love DollyReplyDelete
How fun, but those folks look a bit scary, were you scared? I bet you are glad you aren't in MN anymore since 55 is a heatwave!ReplyDelete
What a great outing! I'm sure y'all were the best dogs around. Did the Indians dress startle you?ReplyDelete
What a fun encounter on your walk! I bet everyone was more than happy to love on you. I guess they didn't have fluffy dogs in the olden day!ReplyDelete
What a fun time! Our mom would have been standing in front of the wool spinners for hours!ReplyDelete
Love ya lots♥
