Day Tripping: Quirky Colonial Day (Part 2 of 2)


This past Tuesday, I shared a few photographs of an event celebrating Colonial Day at a nearby town. We left off with us seeing James and Dolly Madison hot footing somewhere, but we lost them in the crowd.  Nevertheless, we enjoyed the afternoon filled with costumed Colonial actors, Colonial era crafts, bagpipers, with a mixture of the quirky and curious.

My beau checked out stocks, which were inoperable. I don’t know if Cowboy Dan in the background had anything to do with it:

A little band with violin, mandolin, and dulcimer played traditional Irish melodies and non-traditional Irish-sounding songs:

One of the members danced the jig:

I spied this pretty blue skirt beribboned with red:

A glimpse of the crowd forming:

It wouldn’t be a party without bunting:

It was time for lunch, even for these two dogs we passed:

Our lunch was typical fare, and afterwards we walked around a little more, then headed home. The nice weather and fresh air gave me and my beau a nice change of pace. I hope you enjoyed this little trip to Colonial Day!
