Longs Peak Festival

For the past few days Estes Park has been the scene of the annual Longs Peak Scottish-Irish Highland Festival. Unlike last year, the weather has been gorgeous throughout the event. Mom and Peggy went with me to the parade on Saturday morning and it was lots of fun to watch the bands, clans, dogs of the British Isles and more. Wayne and I spent the afternoon at the fair grounds. We wandered through many of the exhibits, listened to a concert by the Brigadoons from Nova Scotia, saw sheep herding demonstrations, a jousting tournament and dancers. Wayne had his annual mug of Guinness and I sampled a delicious scone with strawberries and cream. It was a delightful day.
