We went to the annual Summerfest last night and we had a great time - always spend more then we plan on of course - and eat way more then we should - but it was still a night to remember. Our friends Damien and Corrinne (who is Irish) came with their daughter Victoria and we really enjoyed the fireworks. There is another set of fireworks tonight at 9:15 if anyone missed them.
The Summerfest is sponsored and organized by the local Kiwanis Club of Sand Lake (I will be blogging about them later this month). They also serve beer and have a food tent. There are 1/2 dozen rides for small children and another 1/2 dozen for larger children and adults. There are also carnival games (hook the duck, shoot darts at balloons, make baskets) for money (is it me or does this seem so much more expensive every year?) to win cheap stuffed animals and blow-up toys. And of course you can get candy apples, cotton candy, freshly squeezed lemonade, sausage and peppers and my favorite, funnel cake. Last night we watched a small group of girls called the Emeralds of July - they were fun, singing poppy songs. Made me think of a live version of Kidz Bop. It was a bit colder then we expected so I purchased a nice black hoody with the word Irish embroidered on it - which made Corrinne smile We ended the night with the fireworks.
Enjoy the photos!
