As we wandered around the festival, we were treated to drumming performances, mermaids singing, guitars singing and a harpist. We made a beeline for face painting as it was number one on both kids' lists.
Sarah took time to make a fish print.
We spent some time creating a painting that was pressed and printed.
We took a break from the heat and sat in the shade to enjoy a cold treat.
|I am going to take this opportunity to point out that Jack does not like cold treats. But he always insists he wants one anyways. I think this is the only lick he took and of course he wouldn't bite it. Spiderman was too cold!|
We enjoyed a crab puppet show.
We tried some of the interactive games such as basketball and fishing.
We met many interesting characters and mascots who took the time to give hugs, fist pumps and high fives to Jack and Sarah.
It is these community events that I cherish the most. The community feel as we come together to celebrate history and learn something in the process. Bumping into people I know, smiling at people I recognize. Watching other families enjoying time together on a beautiful day. Admiring the volunteers who take the time to make a festival like this a success and possible.
